Joanna and Matthew Schmit

When Joanna Schmit launched Lajkonik Polish Folk Dance troupe more than 25 years ago, she did it to keep her two young boys connected to their culture. Now one of those boys, Matthew, heads the group, choreographing dances and organizing the group for its annual stint in the Polish food booth. Join Joanna and Matthew to hear stories of their Tucson Meet Yourself experience and how the festival helped them stay connected to their culture across the miles.
