Our story

How did our community evolve?

  • 2005 - 2012


    Irish dance in Poznan is developed by the Irish Dance School ISTA associated with the Irish Dance Commission in Dublin and the Celtica Irish dance group.

  • August 2012

    We have a home!

    Community Leader, Magdalena Mak-Jeszka, opens EtnoBalans Dance Studio. Irish dancers move into the studio at Wielka 19 in Poznań, enjoying their own space for training and meetings.

  • 2012 - 2014

    Dance worlds fusion

    The studio becomes a space where various dance worlds interchange: Irish dance, tap dance, flamenco, balfolk, swing, contemporary dance, hula, afro, samba, salsa, broadway jazz, improvisation...

  • 2015 - 2017

    Arts space

    The EtnoBalans space is enlarged and hosts a variety of artistic projects, music and vocal workshops, body work workshops, dances, performances, craft workshops...

  • 2017 - 2020

    Free birds again

    Magda starts a new life adventure in Berlin and gives space in Wielka Street over to her friends. Our community continues to dance, new instructors lead regular classes and a Sheemore Irish dance group emerges.

  • March 2020

    Virtual reality (insanity?)

    The COVID-19 pandemic provides us with new challenges and we start to meet in virtual space as well, in order to be able to sustain the dance vibrations.
