Polonez (Eng. polonaise) - With this patriotic dance, Wianek opens major events such as Pulaski Day Parade Ball and other Truly Polish Events. The dignity and pride displayed in this "pacer" dance symbolizes Polish core values of trust and devotion in God, Honour and Fatherland.
Krakowiak - Wianek's goal is to maintain wide array of national cohesiveness, which includes dances from various regions of Poland - Krakowiak, as its name suggests derives from Krakow. As the original Polish Capital Krakow plays a distinct role in Polish History and Heritage.
Polka - Wianek's love for Polka derives from deep attachment to Polish and Central European and Pan-Slavic traditions. It also moves the Western world emotionally and as a catalyst to begin serious fun at various events and shows. Older generations love to dance Polka and Wianek attempts to instill that love into our kids and their peers.
Polka Lubelska - Another Polka, only from the Lublin region - Lublin has played a major role in shaping Polish identity since 1198. Hence having its own Polka named after itself should come as no surprise. Wianek loves dancing this rhythmic and jumpy dance.
Oberek - Wherever Wianek performs Oberek, masses of folks are moved from their chairs... this "spinner" dance is one of the most popular numbers in Poland and In the United States.
Kujawiak - More subtle yet very entertaining dance derived from Kujawy region is performed by Wianek with equal enthusiasm and charm
Mazur (Eng. Mazurka) - One of five Polish National Dances, this dance is a bit more nostalgic and reaching to very patriotic traditions and times in which the spirit of Poland was tamed by foreign occupiers. Wianek performs it to commemorate and maintain noble traditions of those who were not afraid to give up their lives so that we can speak, sign and dance Polish Dances.
Trojak - Dance from Slask region performed by male and two females. The dance is very dynamic
