The JANOSIK DANCERS are an educational, recreational, and cultural organization primarily interested in learning and performing Polish folk dances. The purpose of this troupe is to help spread Polish culture as a means of promoting cultural understanding among various ethnic groups.
Since its inception in October of 1971, Janosik has been devoted to the learning and performing of Polish dance, Polish song, and the preservation and dissemination of Polish customs and culture. Janosik is best known as a performing ensemble, but since 1972 it has given much toward the teaching and the spread of the love of things Polish, to the Polish community in this country, to non-Poles, and to the people of Poland.
Janosik has had special workshops with the Polish State Folk Dance and Song Ensemble, Mazowsze, whenever they visited Philadelphia. There has also been a workshop with members ot Slask, another well-known company of Poland.
Janosik is a non-profit and tax-exempt corporation. We welcome performers from all backgrounds to learn about authentic Polish dance.
