Dutch hop is a type of music and dance unique to Germans from Russia, also known as Volga Germans. Dutch hop is a polka style of dance, but it differs from Polish or German polkas by using small steps and the dance has more up and down bouncing than forward motion. Dutch hop music is slower than other polka music, accentuated by two short beats at the end of every measure. Instrumentation of the band can include an accordion, dulcimer, fiddle, trombone, and a bass piano.
