The group has been supported by the Polish community in and around Canberra through the White Eagle Club and SPK without which support we would find it hard to exist.
Since it’s inception, the Group has participated in many concerts and festivals within the Canberra area, including: Floriade, Multicultural Festival, Canberra Festival, Multicultural week and Ausdance Festival, Royal Canberra Show and the Strzelecki Festival at Jindabyne in the NSW Snowy Mountains.
The dance group has also represented Canberra at Pol-Art Festivals. These were Polish cultural festivals held in Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne.
Most of the original members from the 1980’s have left the group.There are however two performers who remain from the original group established in the early 80’s. Mark and Krystyna Mikolajczak: They are now the joint directors of the present group who have been together since 2002
