    Is "Supercalafajalistickespeealadojus" an acceptable polka rhythm?

    No. It's in ithyphallic rhythm.

    Polka is 2/4 with 120 beats per minute.

    But that didn't stop coaches from claiming a tango was an acceptable waltz rhythm either.

    Here's the Tractor Polka, which also might work

    I agree that would work. I expect to hear it from some couple.

    I think the SD will have a lot of Eurovision type music.

    Actually, it'll be the Finnstep.

    I so hope someone does that Weird Al polka...

    We do have to revisit this particular music choice by the Beiers from 2007

    Doris, could you jump ahead a year and give some examples of the Finnstep?

    It may take me a while.

    The Finnstep is based on Rahkamo & Kokko's OD to Borsalino, of course.

    But I'm guessing

    Girls, Girls, Girls

    Grishuk & Platov used it, and it was great

    Tanith and Ben used it too:

    is next year's Mas Que Nada.

    And that we see

    Let's Face the Music (and Dance) again too.

    I'll try to find some less used items.

    To get you all started, this might work

    Gene Kelly & the Worry Song

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DP0kQFvj9rs

    and there are over 300 quickstep songs listed at Ballroom Dancers dot com
