SPK Iskry

Repertoire


Iskry's repertoire is large and vast, ranging from all of Poland as well as some dances from neighboring countries. Here are some of the song and dances that Iskry performs

Goralski

The elements of the Polish Highland dances were echoed in music composed
by Stanislaw Moniuszko in his opera “Halka”, and had a strong impact on the
character and drama of this national opera. Highlander culture is distinctive as
it is rich in its architecture, music, painting and its colourful costumes are highly
original, reflecting the unique environment in which they were created.

Krakowiak

Krakow is well known not only as the site of the old capital city of Poland, but
also as a vibrant centre of rich folklore, historic traditions and the arts. The
Krakowiak is one of the most popular and characteristic Polish folk dances with
its very lively, even wild tempo and long, easy strides demonstrating spirited
abandon and elegance at the same time.
