Polka is about having fun. Imagine those Eastern Europeans in their beer halls having the time of their Holka Polka - Lee* & Sally Sweetland - Lets Dance (4 Folk-Dance Songs) (Vinyl) doing it and let loose!
Add your own flair however the music takes you. Part 2. Polka to the side. With the same three step movements and holding your partner in the same fashion, trying polkaing to the side. Instead of it being like a step ball-change or a little shuffle, it'll probably look more like a skip. It can be very bouncy and upbeat. Try going back and forth, in squares, and front and back again. Keep your feet facing your partner and just move them right or left.
Your back stays straight, your arms stay up, and you let your legs do the work. Start turning. Because it's time to get fancy. You've got the polka down from front to back and from side to side -- and not it's time to start turning.
The lead will determine whether the couple turns right or left and both are the same idea: Start with a basic polka. After a measure or two, the lead should starting turning forward and to Holka Polka - Lee* & Sally Sweetland - Lets Dance (4 Folk-Dance Songs) (Vinyl) 2 o' clock on his left, right, left, and then turn back toward his 7 o'clock on his right, left, right. That's a right turn basic; the left is just turning the opposite way.
A full degree turn should be completed in 4 counts. Try doing several in a row! If you're polkaing to the side, take 2 counts to do a degree turn, flipping around, now facing the other direction. If you're leading, you can whip your partner around and around and around. Just don't get too dizzy! Do it in promenade pose. That's fancy terminology Holka Polka - Lee* & Sally Sweetland - Lets Dance (4 Folk-Dance Songs) (Vinyl) opening up your stance.
Instead of holding your partner in front of you, you should each take your foot closest to your clasped hands and rotate degrees. Your hands and torso stay in the same position, but your feet are facing forward.
The two parties are facing each other, torsos held high, but their legs are moving to the side, driving them forward. It's similar -- but with fewer roses and dips. Add some hops. If you're doing the polka in promenade pose, your legs are open and able to do some hopping! If not, your partner is in front of you -- hopping would just end up in your two bumping knees.
So take advantage of that open pose and bring your knees a bit higher on each step -- and highest on Holka Polka - Lee* & Sally Sweetland - Lets Dance (4 Folk-Dance Songs) (Vinyl) first full step of each cycle -- beats 1 and 3, namely.
You know those high knees your gym teacher made you do? It's really just like that, only voluntary. For beats 1 and 3, just add a little pep to your step. It can be a lot more fun when you get into it! Switch legs. Again in Holka Polka - Lee* & Sally Sweetland - Lets Dance (4 Folk-Dance Songs) (Vinyl) pose, you can sometimes switch it up by using different legs. Since they're open, you and your partner can start on outside legs, start on inside legs, or start on opposite legs.
