NOTE: The Polka is a folk dance, not a ballroom dance. This
means it does not have bronze, silver, gold, etc. standard series.
Rather, there is a wide variety of Polka styles and steps. Since
big bands usually play one or more Polkas at their dances, however,
these sample steps and this routine is included in the Beginner set
of dance lessons.
