The Polka, coming from Bohemia in the 1800s, has an unforgettable rhythm – da-da-dum, da-da-dum. The name is Czech for “half-step,” much used in the dance. The Polka is danced in pairs either face-to-face or standing side-by-side. Polka music has a 2/4 beat and is notable for its happy sound. The Polka has consistently remained a very popular dance worldwide.
