Don’t miss our own local Łowiczanie Polish Folk Dance Ensemble, a Polish folk dance group based in San Francisco who was formed in 1975. Łowiczanie puts a high value on authenticity of folk dancers, traditional customs, and costuming. From the beginning, they worked with Master Choreographers who traveled from the most remote towns and villages of Poland to work with the dancers. During the last 8 years, they have acquired complete sets of handmade costumes from six regions, and have augmented holdings of other costumes. The Ensemble performs throughout California and the western U.S. and presents vibrant programs for concerts, festivals and special events. The repertoire features authentic Polish material from both the nobility and the countryside, performed in exquisite museum-quality costumes.
