KUKUŁECZKA – Polish Dance Group, Perth AUS

The folkloric song and dance group KUKUŁECZKA, has showcased songs, dances and culture from Poland within the Perth community since 1991 and is in its present day a thriving performance arts group with over 100 dancers, ranging from four to 75 years old. Over the course of its history Kukułeczka has garnered a reputation for delivering strong, colourful and lively performances for the multicultural community locally in WA, interstate and overseas.

The group has traveled to Poland, Taiwan and Malaysia to represent Polish-Australian culture at international multicultural festivals. With a vast and vibrant repertoire under their belt, the group showcase both National Dances and regional programs from Poland such as the Silesian Beskids, Opoczno and Kurpie but also performs songs and dances depicting rites and traditions such as celebrations around Midsummer Solstice.

Most recently they are very excited to expand the skills amongst the dancers, to not only include singing and dancing but also playing musical instruments, with their own kapela in the making!
