The Pittsburgh Area Slovak Folk Ensemble (PÁS), one of the premier ethnic performing groups in Pittsburgh for more than 40 years, recreates the splendor of Slovakia through traditional folk music, song and dance.
Audiences have praised the authenticity of the entertainment which has helped them recall memories of their homelands or their ancestry. In colorful regional costumes of Slovakia, PÁS performs lively village dances from the Central Highlands of Det’va to the explosive Górale footwork of the mountainous Tatras, to the leaps and jumps of the West and to the graceful and romantic movements of Eastern Slovakia. The spirit of this country comes alive through the music and singing of folk songs.

"Joining PÁS was one of the best decisions I've ever made," says member, Melanie Kopanic-Feighner. "Every day I use the lessons I've learned about Slovak values and teamwork in my workplace and family life, such as unbounded hospitality and generosity toward others, humility, and having fun while still working hard for a goal."
