Aggie started professional dance training in her 20s, when she walked into an Arthur Murray Dance Studio in San Diego, California. Although she had been partner dancing (waltz and swing) with her father back in Poland, she never had any formal training prior to entering that dance studio. Shortly after placing first in her first few amateur competitions, she started competing Pro/Am with her dance teacher at competitions all over the U.S. Nine years ago, Aggie joined Dancing on the Shore, an instructional dance company that has now served the Delmarva Peninsula for 20 years.
