PURPOSE

The (P.F.D.A.A.) Polish Folk Dance Association of the Americas, Inc. was organized in 1983 to strengthen the network of Polish dance companies in the Western world. The membership currently consists of 35 ensembles from the United States and Canada. The main goal of the PFDAA is to sponsor North American Polish folk dance festivals and serve as a central source for information regarding Polish folk music, dance, customs, and wardrobe. The success of this organization is evident in the many festivals and joint concerts that have been conducted in the USA and Canada. Our festivals are based on a combination of dance classes, social activities, and a gala concert.
