WARNING! - Not the Traditional Polish Hop
Dr C | Florida | 07/12/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The webpage needs to warn customers that this DVD teaches a variant on Polka that the teacher calls "bounce". The traditional style is often called the "Polish hop". The word Polka means "hop" and it is the hop on the first or grace-note step that gives the Polka its flavor. This raises a problem for the student. Find out if it is the hop or the bounce that is done in your area. If people do the hop, then do NOT buy this DVD.

The DVD consists of a series of drills. There is very little dancing. (Compare this to one of the Cal Pozo tapes.) In many ways, it is a come-on for the other overpriced DVD's in the series. It is as if you bought a Fundamentals of Football DVD and found it contained instructions on doing push-ups and wind sprints but nothing about football itself. Further, you find the DVd teaches Touch, not Tackle. You then learn you must buy more DVD's to learn about the game itself. "Disappointing" is an understatement.

If you want to learn the Hop, do not buy this DVD."
