Having relocated to in early 2013 Konrad was running in Burgess Park when he saw 2InSpire’s banner advertising classes for young people. Having taught breakdancing in his native Poland and keen to continue this work here, he enquired whether 2InSpire would be interested in running classes. They were but suggested Konrad first contact ACTive Walworth for training and support.
ACTive Walworth have helped Konrad with Safeguarding training, First Aid training, CRB check and funded his place at Creation Dance Training so he is fully equipped to teach children and run his own voluntary classes in Walworth.
“Before, I was living in Elephant & Castle and it felt like a hotel – I was missing a sense of community and being a part of something bigger. So I started looking around for community centres, I wanted to give my classes so I could feel I was doing something for the community and definitely ACTive Walworth has enabled that.”
