Syrena’s mission is to entertain and educate the general public in Polish folk culture through the performance of dances, songs, authentic costums and traditional customs of Poland.
The Syrena Polish Folk Dance Ensemble of Milwaukee, WI, was founded in 1975, and is a proud member of the International Institute of Wisconsin. Since 1979, the Ensemble has been under the direction of Ada Dziewanowska, an internationally known Polish folklore authority and dance choreographer and author of a comprehensive work entitled, Polish Folk Dances and Songs: a Step by Step Guide. More recently, Syrena has added the talents of Duane Tomka as a dance instructor.
