Monika Sojka

She grad­u­at­ed from the Fry­deryk Chopin Acad­e­my of Music (now the Fry­deryk Chopin Acad­e­my of Music) in War­saw, Depart­ment of Music Edu­ca­tion, sec­tion of rhyth­mics.

Since 1998 she has been con­nect­ed with the Fry­deryk Chopin Uni­ver­si­ty of Music in War­saw, where she was an artis­tic super­vi­sor of many music-and-move­ment pre­sen­ta­tions. She also pre­sent­ed orig­i­nal move­ment inter­pre­ta­tions of music pieces. Among her inter­ests are the essence of feel­ing music with the body move­ment, as well as expand­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ties of move­ment expres­sion. For this she looks for var­i­ous kinds of speak­ing through move­ment. In her work she uses ele­ments of mod­ern dance tech­niques, as well as the results of her own artis­tic pur­suits.

Moni­ka Soj­ka is a lec­tur­er at the Unit of Rhyth­mics and Piano Impro­vi­sa­tion and she con­ducts class­es in: Move­ment Tech­nique, Move­ment Com­po­si­tion, Method­ics and Rhyth­mics Ensem­bles.
