"Lajkonik" at The Parramasala Festival

Yesterday, a 4-pair contingent from Lajkonik took part in an integrated dance programme called “Western Sydney Story” presented in the finale of the major Indian Festival called “Parramasala”, in Prince Alfred Park, Parramatta.    This 3-day festival was supported by Parramatta City Council and is one of the biggest annual Festivals in Sydney.

Lajkonik danced alongside various Ensembles from India, Thailand, Mexico and others as part of a special programme put together by Artistic Director Ruchi Sanghi from the Indian Community. Each group danced into each other’s programme, and at the end there was a joint finale of all performers.  It was very dynamic, colourful and inspiring!  Next year this concept of integration and collaboration through dance is to be further extended and developed.
Lajkonik dancers chatted with other performers and happily posed for photos.

Whenever time permits in our busy schedule, Lajkonik takes opportunities to join with other nationalities to show off our beautiful Polish culture, and also to show that we are willing to work together with others, and appreciate their cultures too.  We feel richer by that experience.
Thanks to wonderful young people in Lajkonik, I can rely on them being willing to organise their busy lives, to leave the couch in front of the TV, to leave their ipads and computers – and come together with their fellow dancers to do something worthwhile for the community.  It doesn’t happen automatically.  Each performance and each dance has to be practised during rehearsals, and then co-ordinated to ensure everyone is available, knows where to go, has means of transport, etc.

If you believe in what we are doing, please support Lajkonik.  You can do this in two ways – either by coming to our concerts or by becoming a sponsor.  Check out Lajkonik Sydney Facebook for details of our next pre-New Zealand Tour concert, MAKE SURE YOU LIKE OUR PAGE, or make a donation to help us achieve even more.   We deeply appreciate and value each and every one of our supporters.
