The cultural history of San Antonio and Austin includes a unique amalgamation of music and dance styles. People not familiar with this region may be surprised at German, Czech and Polish influences in the region’s folk and country music popular among English and Spanish speaking residents alike.
At San Antonio’s River City Dance Studio, most students first encounter polka music during the practice parties, where it’s played during a stop-the-music ice-breaker to ensure everyone gets a different dance partner and no one’s left out.
Those who want more advanced instruction in Country Polka learn the triple-steps, skips, and spins that will soon have them gasping for breath, if not from the aerobic intensity, then from laughter at a fun and festive dance style that refuses to take itself too seriously.
