The Song and Dance Company ‘Greater Poland-Old Polanie’ (St. Anthony of Padua Church and Franciscan Monastery on the Premislaus Hill in Poznan). The Folk Dance Group ‘Staropolanie/Old Polanie’ (Polanie - historic tribe of Poles) was formed in 2004 by the two pairs of dancing partners: Mary and Darius Jezierscy (‘Greater Poland’), and Emily and Mark Bukala (‘Silesia’). Other dancers and singers were former members of the known Polish ensembles: ‘Silesia’, ‘Greater Poland’, ‘Cepelia’, and ‘Siekieracy’. Their management committee took a decision to merge together with the ‘Greater Poland’ ensemble. Since its inception in 2011, the new team actively performs in its hometown, at home and abroad.
