17th International Polish Folk Dance Festival in Rzeszów, Poland

This year, two PRCUA dance groups attended the 17th International Polish Folk Dance Festival in Rzeszów, Poland (XVII Światowy Festiwal Polonijnych Zespołów Folklorystycznych). Wesoły Lud Polish Folk Dance Company and Polonia Ensemble traveled overseas to participate in this international celebration of dance. Groups from all over the world attending the festival performed numerous traditional Polish folk dances, as well as one social dance from their home country.
