PÁS Adult Ensemble
Members of the PÁS Adult group perform in energizing dances such as the Men's Ax Dance, the Women's Stamping Dance and the group's signature dance, the Sariska Polka featuring amazing lifts and intense footwork.
The PÁS Adult group also provides opportunities for performing in a variety of vocal and instrumental arrangements that celebrate our Slovak heritage.
Prior experience is welcomed, but not necessary to become a part of this amazing group. Member ages range from 14+.
"I began dancing with PÁS shortly after joining, and with no prior dance experience," says member, Melanie Kopanic-Feighner. "I was 22 years old at the time, so naturally I thought that there was no way I could catch up; originally, I thought I'd just be singing. But it was so difficult to resist the urge to learn the dances when everyone's enthusiasm is so high. The other members and director, Angie, are so helpful and welcoming, you pick up even the more difficult dances in no time. I'm so glad I did!"

In addition to sharing their vocal, instrumental and dance talents, members of the PÁS Adult group, work with the Children's group to pass along the knowledge gained not only from our families, but also through membership in this fraternal group.
The PÁS Adult group has performed at Walt Disney World, Florida, Detva, Slovakia, Baltimore, MD, New Jersey, and many renown venues in the Pittsburgh Area (including the 2012 Light Up Night), just to name a few.
Opportunities to travel open doors to meeting people from around the world, as well as sightseeing outside of the actual performances. For example, during the 2009 Slovakia trip, the group toured Eastern Slovakia and stopped in Paris to see the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and other famous landmarks of the city. Members also made friends with other performers from across the European content while dancing in Slovakia.
