Prof. Maja Trochimczyk with her assistant, Michał Jankowski conducted a research project of selected Polish dances and Polish folk dance groups in Southern California. The project has been sponsored by the Southern California Studies Center at USC. For more information about the history of the dance groups, the reception and significance of dance for Polish immigrants to Southern California, and the discussion of an opinion survey conducted in 1999 among Polish-American community members in the Los Angeles area please request a copy of Dr. Trochimczyk’s report “Dance as Identity Symbol: Polish Dance in Southern California” (August 2001) from the Southern California Studies Center.
