Polka Party Is Sunday At Dorchester Legion
Are you ready to party to polka?
Back by popular demand, the Dorchester American Legion this coming Sunday, Jan. 10, will once again host a polka dance at the Legion Hall.
According to an e-mail sent to the Times, polka queen Angie Kriz and her PolkaToons will show you how polka was meant to be played.
Sunday's 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.
