Need to Polka for an Upcoming Wedding?Don't panic. There is no better place to learn how to polka dance than at at Polish Hall 826 Greenwood St, Madison, IL. Lots of skilled dancers are present and are willing teach you how to dance. Polish Hall has a wooden dance floor, and a separate bar area for the libation of your choice. The best time to learn is at the St Louis Metro Polka Club functions. You'll have better success if your shoes have leather soles, and if you have a musical choice for the polka, opt out of the Beer Barrel Polka, the tempo is a little ambitious for a beginner.
