Trojak ("threesome", "trio", in Polish) is a Silesian folk dance. It is a double partner dance and performed in groups of three: one male dancer and two female dancers. The music of the dance has two parts: a slow one in 3
4
metre and a fast one in 2
4
metre. These parts are repeated several times, one after another.

Ignoring the footwork, the figures may have the following arrangements.

  • All three move in sync from the same foot.
  • The boy dances with one girl, the second one dancing alone, then the boy switches the girl.
  • Girls are rolling on and then rolling off the arms.
  • The trio forms a circle
  • The boy and the girls separate and move in the opposite directions, then join again.
