With the swishing of skirts and the tramping of boots, the Polish Folk Dancers of Thorp have been entertaining people in Wisconsin. Their program is varied from the stately Polonaise to the gay and lively Krakowiak Members of the groop represent a cross section of vocations, with ages ranging from 8 to over 30. In the past years the Dancers have traveled several hundred miles to entertain.
