Are you ready to party to polka?
Back by popular demand, the Dorchester American Legion will again host a polka dance on Sunday, Oct. 22, at the Legion Hall.
According to flyers spotted around town, polka queen Angie Kriz and the PolkaToons will show you how polka was meant to be played.
The Oct. 22 event will kick off at 4:00 p.m. and continue until 8:00 p.m.
Only a $5 cover charge and the Dorchester Legion kitchen will be open. So plan to have dinner at the Legion.
Free will donations will be accepted.
Proceeds will go to the Dorchester American Legion.
And here's a little trivia for some of you with curious minds: Polka originated as a Czech peasant dance. Historic folklore has it that a peasant girl named Anna Slezak invented the steps one day for her own amusement. The word “pulka” is derived from the Czech phrase for “half-step,” which refers to the dance pattern of lightly stepping from one foot to the other.
