Once upon a time. So long ago. Not over nine mountains and nine rivers; here in our city of Písek, where hills are called mountains and where only one river flows, but it is gold-bearing, the initiative of Mr. Bečka whom we all "confidentially" call "Doctor" led to the establishment of the Písečan Folklore Group with which the history and present time of Písečánek is related. Members in the Group have been changing and as time went, they grew older and liked each other more and more. And so, a small Písečánek was born in 2006. From birth he had been a strong boy and grown like a weed. When others took the first steps, he already walked. When others walked and learned to run, he already danced enthusiastically and also sang ...
Today there are around thirty such children in our Group and the Parkánek Band comprising children from the School of Art in Písek under the supervision of František Staněk accompanies their dancing with music. We participate in 12 to 15 events per year, not only in Písek and nearby, but also around the Czech Republic. In addition to these events we organize an intensive dance training for the kids two times per year. Písečánek is also the founder and co-organizer of the "Maypole Erection" folklore event. In this respect, we would like to thank the city of Písek for its support, without which the Group's activity would not be so rich.
We strive to pass to the kids everything we learnt from the adult Group. Joy from dancing on folklore songs, a bit of play and travelling and learning about people and kids with the same hobby... As joint experiences unite people, these kids are a good team too.
