That’s because it IS "The Bear Dance".

I disagree.

Perhaps it was loosely derived from it, though.

Hanka’s Polka, X:2

Setting in Bmin.

Jeremy King, from Poitín, has informed me that this tune was accidentally not credited on their album. It was in fact composed by one of their former flute/whistle players, Hana Círová, who goes by the nickname "Hanka" among friends.

She did compose the tune in part from other tunes, hence, the few phrases quite close to The Bear Dance.
