Cohen & Grigsby TRUST PRESENTS Series

Śląsk - Poland's National Dance Company have been described as one of the grandest and most dazzling spectacles in the world!

Their 60th Anniversary Tour will celebrate the vivid and dynamic Silesian folk music and dance with over 80-members in the ensemble and stunning, traditional costumes.

The show is a thrilling display of dazzling movement, vibrant colour and stunning beauty, with beautiful choreographic, vocal and musical performances. They whirl, leap, stamp and glide in a glorious outpouring of sound and motion, rhythm and music that celebrates the cultural legacy of Poland.

There are over 100 performers in Śląsk, and the troupe consists of choir, orchestra and dancers dressed in stunning and intricately decorated traditional costumes. One of the highlights of the show is the spectacular costumes; there are over 1,000 in the performance! In Poland there is no other group which equals Śląsk for its ability to present the folklore of Polish highlanders. The traditional tunes convey a sense of the traditions from the green pastures of Beskids Mountains and steep peaks of Tatras Mountains. Over the years, Śląsk have visited 44 countries on five continents and performed over seven thousand concerts to an audience of over 25 million. They performed for Pope John Paul II who was a patron of the troupe, and performed for him in the Vatican.

They have also won several awards including the Music and Art Award of Silesia, an Honorary award from the President of the United States, an Honorary award from the Ministry of Culture of the Soviet Union, and an award from the Silesian Voivodeship.
