About the group
"Jautrais pāris" was established in 1950, and since then has performed at all Australian Latvian Arts Festivals and Youth Festivals, many Folkloric festivals at the Sydney Opera House, and countless concerts and events organised by the Sydney Latvian community and the broader Baltic community.

In 1976, together with the Latvian folkdance group from Canberra, "Sprigulītis", "Jautrais pāris" formed the folkloric ensemble "Saules josta", which became well known to Latvian communities around the globe through its seven international tours and participation in two National Song and Dance Festivals in Latvia.

The members of "Jautrais pāris" range in age from late teens to early thirties, and there are currently approximately 20 registered dancers.
