A San Francisco Dance Ensemble

The Mission of Łowiczanie Polish Folk Dance Ensemble is to preserve and present traditional music, song and dance from Poland through the creation and production of professional programs that both entertain and educate audiences.

Celebrating Our 41st Year, established 1975


Łowiczanie Polish Folk Dance Ensemble, Resident Dance Company of the Polish Club in San Francisco, is a group of skilled and dedicated dancers, singers and musicians who present traditional music, song and dance from Poland. The Ensemble performs throughout California and the western U.S. and presents vibrant programs for concerts, festivals and special events. The repertoire features authentic Polish material from both the nobility and the countryside, performed in exquisite museum-quality costumes.


Will true love prevail? Which is better, love or money? And what about that bear? Don't miss Lowiczanie in collaboration with San Francisco's venerable Pocket Opera when we present Bedrich Smetana's comic opera, "The Bartered Bride." Our stellar cast of vocalists will be joined by Lowiczanie Folk Dance Ensemble to bring to life the story of the young woman Marenka who is in love with Jenik, but her parents want her to marry Vasek, who has been presented by the marriage broker, Kecal. Dancing, drinking, a traveling circus, mistaken identities, and a bear bring this delightful three-act opera to a festive conclusion. Who will Marenka marry?

Łowiczanie rehearses every Tuesday night (7:30 to 10:30) at the Polish Club in San Francisco, 3040 22nd St. Rehearsals are open to the public, and all interested persons are invited to attend.
Rehearsals include warm-up exercises, introduction of new dance steps and choreography, and fine-tuning of existing choreography. While the dancers work hard during rehearsal, there is plenty of time for socializing and having fun with fellow ensemble members. Rehearsals are an event that all dancers look forward to on a weekly basis.
