In 1937, the Polish government sent an expedition to Madagascar to explore the possibilities of col-onising the island. The expedition was supported by the Maritime and Colonial League, closely linked to the Polish authorities, and promoted the slogan: „like every free nation, Poland deserves to have its own colonies”. However, Madagascar never became a Polish colony.
In 1920, an informal conference of dance teachers in London created a new style: modern ball-room dance. The dances of the enslaved communities of Brazil, Haiti and Cuba were codified and became a popular entertainment for the upper middle class. Over time, samba, cha-cha, rumba, paso doble and jive became the ballroom Latin American dances and are still performed at dance competitions.
