Poland, birthplace of Polonaise and Mazurka, possesses a passionate love of music and dancing which has survived the ravages of many foreign invaders, from Genghis Khan and his dreaded Tartars down to more recent oppressions.

There are many and varied steps to be found in the national dances of Poland, and this book contains the notations and music of four original and exciting dances - including the 'Goralski', a brigand dance from the mountains, and the famous Krakowiak - which are also depicted in striking colour plates showing authentic costumes.

Mme. Wolska had had long experience of the dances of Poland, for after being connected with the Polish Ballet Company directed by Nijinsky's sister, she joined the well-known Anglo-Polish Ballet Company as both dancer and ballet mistress.
