Members of Wieśniacy vary in age from 13 until they ‘retire’. Nearly all the people in the group are Polish, but that's not a prerequisite, as long as you enjoy the music, the dancing and the culture - all are welcome!
Individuals do not profit from paid performances. The tuition and time spent working and performing is entirely voluntary and unpaid. All proceeds from performances or fund-raising are ploughed back into making and creating new dances and costumes.
