Well, there are some lively group dances in the first act..I can see how it could not only work well , but be a standout.
KKonas, thanks for the information and the discussion of tango.
As for Giselle being relevant to polka, I'm not familiar with the entire score of the ballet, but most full-length ballets of that period, and lots of operas as well, have a "village dance" scene somewhere near the beginning, featuring the corps de ballet, before the sylphs/ghosts/wilis/enchanted swans appear, and there may be some polka-rhythm music like that in Giselle. Even Swan Lake has something like that tucked in somewhere, as I recall. Coppelia certainly does.
