Lajkonik was last here in 2015 and once again they’ll be performing courtesy of the Myall U3A group.
“Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest residents are eagerly awaiting the return of the Lajkonik Dance Ensemble,” Lyn Chaikin said.
“Their last performance was dynamic and colourful and full energy.”
“It will be a joy to see them again,” Lyn said.
Over the past three years Lajkonik has performed at Festivals in Brisbane, Melbourne and Jindabyne, the Snowy Mountains town holding fond memories for the group.
“The Jindabyne Festival was particularly special as it commemorated the 200th year Anniversary of General Tadeusz Kosciuszko’s death,” a spokesman for the group said.
“The name of ‘Kosciuszko’ is of course the name given to Australia’s highest mountain by the Polish explorer Sir Paul Edmund Strzelecki in honour of a great man who fought for freedom and human rights for all.”
“We come back to Hawks Nest with fond memories of our first concert, and especially the warm hospitality of the people of Hawks Nest and Tea gardens, and hope that our second concert will be enjoyed as much as the first one.”
“We also look forward to teaching you some Polish dancing”
Lajkonik will perform at the Hawks Nest Community Centre on Saturday 17 March.
