and even after declining i have often been dragged onto the dance floor , maybe its my stunning good looks ,
because it looks childish and retarded if a woman dances with a woman, unless a group of girls are doing a traditional dancing like Krakowiak. Polish men feel culturally obligated to dance just like women. There's many Polish folk dance types, that you must know how to dance in order to keep the tradition going.
All the Poles i see dancing seem to be expert in this form of dancing , even the young ones , do they learn it at school , or do families usually teach their childern it...
There's many Polish folk dance types. At Polish public schools, students usually learn the easiest and most old fashioned Polish folk dancing like Polish Polonez from 16th century.
Learn this one before learning two-step: Polonez is easy and two-step is mostly incorporated in many types of Polish dance.
I learned Malva at my Polish School when I was young and I liked it.

Here is a better version of Polka.
