Music For The People

Polonez recently was invited to perform at the 2014 Music for the People Multicultural event. Celebrating the closing of the annual Brunswick Music Festival, the event was planned to be full of music, dancing and food but unfortunately was rained out, never the less Polonez kept a smile on their faces and were still excited to be together on the day.

Polish Festival 2013

Again we had the pleasure for opening the official part of the Polish Festival at Federation Square Melbourne. We danced alternating with Obertas group form Brisbane. Opening with our freshly revitalised Podlaski dance, we entertained the crowds with regular favourites like Nowy Sącz, Rzeszów and Hucuł. We finished with the always entertaining Lwów and closing the show with Krakowiak. A Highlight as always was leading the public in a polonaise across the whole of the square. Our dancers enjoyed their time both on and off the stage. There was lots of great Polish food, drink and entertainment on offer and a great atmosphere shared with many dance group members from interstate.
