Polish Hop Polka Instruction Video

Learning the Polish Hop (Version of the Polka) instructional DVD is available by the Jaakkola Dancers using the Jaakkola method for learning. Available in PAL format also.
NOTE!  Polish Hop basic steps are similar to the Finnish Polka,  and has variations not used in Finnish Folk dancer's polka.

Eric Jaakkola, your instructor, has been featured as a guest dancer on the Lawrence Welk Show and since 1968 has taught thousands of dancers to have more fun by dancing the Polish Hop.
