Dance Signage

Since I have only one set of folk ball photos to deal with thus far, here are photos of posters for three balls from Velké Bílovice. The posters were on a public notice board on the main street.

A folk ball, presumably somewhat similar to the one we attended in Brno.

A firemen's ball (like in the movie?!)

A school ball with cimbalom band

New posters are still going up in Prague, but I suspect only the fanciest are showing up in the Metro and on public billboards.

Why, are there no nice posters in Moscow? (I suppose I should also photograph Prague posters, but these had that small-town charm.)

Oh, I was more referring to the fact that there is actually a ball season in Prague. I haven't waltzed (or folk danced) in years...

I thought you and Brian had done the polka at some sort of family wedding in the relatively recent past. Perhaps I hallucinate and fabricate. It does happen.

I love the posters! There are no balls here in California, but I do manage to go dancing and refering to one of your past post, I don't have to wait for someone to ask me to dance, we just go whenever we want. Usually we are a group and all dance together, but there are no official dance, just moving to music. I love to dance!

I think in the US (and for that matter elsewhere) the main thing is to know where there will be suitable music and atmosphere for dancing. I rarely know where that would be, so don't go very often, especially since it never seems like I know people nearby to go with. A lot of my friends seem to regard dancing as something to avoid, or that they associate with a hated ex.

Ahh, yes, the Olsen/Zentner family polka requirement. You're right, that did happen two years ago. Yes, Brian did get major brownie points with my mother's family for that one.
