Evening in Vienna

I had a wonderful evening of dancing tonight in Seattle at the annual Evening in Vienna at University of Washington hosted by Lilli Ann Carey.

The UW Swing Kids performed the Bohemian National Polka. I initially wanted to join in, but was told “No! No! We’re doing a different one this year!”

There is more than one version of Bohemian National Polka!?

Indeed, there are. The UW Swing Kids version even incorporated my favorite section of the ladies travelling under a tunnel of gents from the 2009 Opening Committee Polka Choreography. Sweet!
