Mid July 2018, PRCUA Vice President Micheline Jaminski will be traveling to Iwonicz Zdrój, Poland, as the guest of the Rzeszów Branch of Stowarzyszenie Wspólnota Polska, the organizers of the 10th International Festival of Children’s Folk Ensembles. She will be joined by Richard Jaminski, and the two children’s groups of which he is the Artistic Director and Choreographer – Wesoły Ludek of the PRCUA Southwest Center of Polish Song and Dance and PRCUA Polanie Dancers of the St. John Paul II Polish School – for both of which this will be the 5th such festival.
Joining these groups for this adventure are: Polonia Ensemble of Chicago (participating for the 3rd time) and – for the FIRST TIME – from Michigan: Halka-Zajączek Dancers (Detroit), Gwiazda (Hamtramck) and Opole (Warren). Total dancers and staff (not including parents): 145 – reminiscent of PRCUA’s 145th Anniversary! Upcoming issues of the Naród Polski, posts on our website and social media will include the reflections of many who will be experiencing the Iwonicz Zdrój Festival or even Poland for the first time! BON VOYAGE!
