Polka music

The term Polka refers to both a Bohemian dance and the music that was originally written to accompany it. Its popularity extended through Europe and America, creating a vast number of regional polka styles. The dance was also adapted by academic composers, especially from Vienna. Though most polkas are in a 2/4 time signature, there are some polkas in 3/4.
