Mazowsze State Dance company was established by a decree issued by the Ministry of Culture and Art in Poland. Designed to maintain regional artistic traditions and the traditional folk repertoire of songs and dances of the Masovian countryside. The group was intended to protect this folk tradition from destruction and encapsulate its diversity, beauty and richness.
In 1951, Mazowsze started touring outside Poland but only within the Soviet Bloc. Three years later the Polish government allowed Mazowsze to venture outside the “Iron Curtain” touring Europe and the USA including 18 appearances at the Hall in 1962.
