Zywiec Polish Folk Song and Dance Group

We are a Polish Folk Song and Dance Group, based in Ealing, London. Since our beginnings in 1965, different members have come and gone but our concept has remained the same; to celebrate Polish folklore and share its rich and vibrant traditions with audiences here and abroad.

Over the years, the group has built up a repertoire of dances and songs, as well as a vast collection of costumes, from across many regions of Poland. From the slow and romantic Kujawiak to the lively and exhilarating dances of the Żywiec Mountains, we display the vibrancy and beauty that is Poland.
