POLKA
The Polka…

…is a lively Central
European dance and
also a genre of dance
music familiar
throughout Europe
and the Americas. It
originated in the
middle of the 19th
century in the Czech
lands

…and is still a common genre in
Lithuanian, Czech, Croatian, Slovenian,
Polish, German, Hungarian, Austrian,
Italian, Ukrainian, Belarusian, Russian and
Slovakian folk music.
Origin of the name
 The
name comes from the Czech word
půlka—literally, little half—a reference to the
short half-steps featuring in the dance. The
word's familiar form has been influenced by
the similarity to the Czech word polka,
meaning "Polish woman". The name has led
to the dance's origin being sometimes
mistakenly attributed to Poland.
Music

In light classical music, many polkas were
composed by both Johann Strauss I and
his son Johann Strauss II; a couple of
well-known ones were composed by
Bedřich Smetana, and Jaromír Vejvoda,
the author of "Škoda lásky" ("Roll Out the
Barrel").
