Whip of Greater Poland 2021

The 7th National Tournament of Polish Dances for the “Wielkopolski Bat” returned to Wronki in a great style after a one-year break. Over 300 dancers representing dance centers from all over Poland came to Wielkopolska to foster Polish dance traditions to fight for the highest trophy – the Greater Poland whip.

Krakowiaks, oberek, kujawiak, mazurkas and polkas resounded for two days in the Wronki concert hall, where over 20 dance centers enchanted the large audience with their professionalism for two days.

Dancers divided into age categories and dance classes competed on the dance floor in formal costumes, and were judged by a jury consisting of expert judges, consultants and other licensed judges of Polish dances. As in previous years, the regional dance category was also played, the aim of which is to popularize the beautiful dance heritage of Wielkopolska. Ruffers, cheers, doves, marinas and other Szamotuły dances were presented on the dance floor by all generations of dancers, not only from Wielkopolska
