TAPS (The Toledo Area Polka Society) was born over 25 years ago. Its founding members had a vision to keep Polka Music alive. There's a concept that Polish music is very oom-pa-pa, very heavy and very old, you'll find in today's Polish world that is just not the case. The bands have established more of a beat and a sound that really attracts a young crowd.

diverse Polish music is
The sheet music cover displays dancers dressed in European finery, engaging in a polka. Originating in Eastern Europe, polkas came to America after having gained popularity in Parisian ballrooms and salons in the 1840's. The polka is just one example of the immigrant influence on dancing style and technique.
