Natalia is a graduate of the Hamburg Ballet School John Neumeier, although she began ballet education in the dance and acting studio on ul. Moliere.

Even while studying at the prestigious school in Hamburg, she was already dancing in the John Neumeier company, casting not only corps de ballet roles, moreover, at the end of her school education she danced the main role in “The Nutcracker” choreographed by John Neumeier at the prestigious Gala Niżyński in Hamburg as the sister of role danced by star of Hamburg Ballet Anna Grabka, who ended her dance career with this spectacle.

Until 1999 she attended the State Ballet School in Warsaw. During her studies in Poland, she was a two-time winner of the National Dance Competition in Gdańsk. In 1997 she won the third place in the junior category, and in 1999 the first place in the senior category as the youngest in the history of the competition. In January 1999, as a finalist, she received a scholarship at the Prix de Lausanne International Dance Competition (only two Polish were the finalists of this competition, Natalia was the last), which enabled her to go to a prestigious school in Hamburg. Already in Hamburg, she was honored twice with the Hapag-Lloyd scholarship for extremely gifted people, which also (twice the scholarship award) took place only once – in the case of Natalia.

Natalia during her typical dance career (typical = full-time work in theaters) had the opportunity to work with the most outstanding choreographers, including with John Neumeier, Krzysztof Pastor, Alexey Ratmanski, Kevin Haigen and others. After graduating from the ballet school in Hamburg, she got engaged in the Neumeier ensemble, where in the first season she danced many group roles and small solo parts in “Giselle”, “Illusion, like Swan Lake” (this ballet with her participation appeared as the first in the ballet collection John Neumeir on DVD), “Niżyński” and many others.

In the years 2003–2006 she cooperated mainly with the Roma Music Theater, creating there, for example, the role of Victoria’s unforgettable white cat in the musical ‘Cats’. It was also there, spotted by the financial director Marek Szyjko, who made her first steps as a specialist for sales PR and marketing and translator (Polish-English-Polish).

In 2005, as an assistant to Roman Polański, she wrote the book “On how Roman Polański’s Vampire Dance was created,” which was published in the same year and is in the National Library as the only example of a theatrical document in the form of an extensive album. Working on this book, on the occasion of which she got to know theatrical production from the back room, gave birth to the conviction that someday, and soon, even herself, she will deal with the production of theater and, more specifically, dance performances.

In the 2005/2006 season she was associated with the Mazovian Operetta, creating solo creations in “Bat’s Revenge” and “Princess Czardasza”. It was during this short adventure, during which she met her very supportive teacher from school years – Barbara Żelazny – she thought that maybe it would be worth returning to ballet and fulfilling her childhood dream … to dance Odetta and Otylia – main parts – in “Lake Swan “.

Before she decided to audition for the National Opera ballet – she also collaborated with the Rozmaitości Theater, with which she was part of the rather loud premiere of “Giovanni”, partnering in some stages Andrzej Hyra or Maja Ostaszewska.

From the 2006/2007 season to 2010/11 she was associated with the National Opera ballet, later the Polish National Ballet, where in accordance with her dream she prepared one of the largest parts of the classical repertoire – Odetta-Odylia from “Swan Lake”. The artist’s debut in this role took place in 2007. In the same year she made her debut in the role of Tatiana in Cranka’s “Onegin”, and in 2008 she appeared in the role of the Snow Queen in Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker” and in the title role in Szczedrin’s “Anna Karenina” . From September 2007 she was a soloist of the National Opera Ballet, and later the Polish National Ballet. Since then, she has created solo parts in “Light and Shadow” by K. Pastor, “Cinderella” by F. Ashton, “Concerto Barocco” by G. Blanachin, “Kurt Weill” by K. Pastor and many other ballets in the repertoire of the Polish National Ballet.

In 2008 during the 1st National Choreographic Competition Bronisława Niżyńska debuted as a choreographer and has since created mini performances during the Choreographic Workshops “Creations”: “Angels” (2009), “Demons” (2010), “It’s just an illusion” (2011).

In 2009, as a soloist of the Polish National Ballet, holding an unusual hobby for those times – pole dance – she founded the Pole Dance Project – the first artistic agency in Poland with the main profile of Pole Dance. Later, the Pole Dance Project evolved into a studio and agency that has new owners since 2013. It was the work on this project that caused her to be very prepared to set up her own ballet school in later years.

In 2010 she established cooperation with the well-known painter Jacques Gassmann, with whom he has sporadically created artistic performances so far (together they performed, among others, at the Museum am Dom in Wurzburg, during the Beethoven Festival in Wurzburg, at the Art Fair – ART FAIR in Rome ).

In 2012, continuing the development of her hobby, she founded the Pole Sport Polska Association, of which she was the President for two years. At that time, she organized the First Official Polish Championships in this discipline in cooperation with the Polish Sports Dance Association, which meant that she began to look at ballet differently – as for a sport discipline, and for students of ball art as for young athletes, which changed her approach to ballet education.

In 2014, continuing to teach others, she founded the Neoclassica Ballet Center to educate young students of classical and neoclassical dance and to support all people, who wants to dance or develop new skills body/mind wise.

Also in 2014, she founded Warsaw Ballet – a company and academy, of which she is the artistic director, dancer and choreographer. The first premiere of the Warsaw Ballet “OF LOVE – ballet evening” took place in June 2015 at the Syrena Theater, and since 2018 Warsaw Ballet has been closely associated with one of theaters in Warsaw – the Second Theater of the Zone of Sylwester Biraga, in which all spectacles and ballet concerts Warsaw Ballet has a place. The Warsaw Ballet Academy aims to educate versatile, aware, smart young people and future dancers.

In 2018, she made her debut in burlesque – combining elements of classical dance with sublime devoid of eroticism burlesque, discovering more and more layers of acting skills in herself. In the same year she made her debut in dramatic art on the stage of the Druga Strfea Theater in her own performance “Fin de …” at the same time becoming an actress of this theater.

Currently, apart from developing theatrical acting career, running the Neoclassica Ballet Center and Warsaw Ballet, she is internationally successful as a recognized stretching instructor – creator of her own training and instructor method Extensio.
