Beskid Dances

Follow Us


These dances originate in the Beskid Mountains of south-eastern Poland. The suite begins with the dances of shepherds on the mountainous meadow, during which the male dancers show off their strength and deftness before the girls, who will perform their dance - Kolomajki- right after the men. The Beskid suite ends with the famous couples dance of this region- the Swiniorz- which is performed to one of the most popular regional songs. Original, simple costumes of the Beskid highlanders are still used today when performing this suite.
