Texas dance halls are about family, history, romance, and a way of life.
Dance halls are where generations of Texans have played and listened to some of the best music made in America. At a dance hall, you can fall in love, and then teach your children and grandchildren to dance … catch up with friends and neighbors, welcome newcomers, and create the social ties that bind our towns and our state together. Come on out and see for yourself what makes a historic dance hall one of the most Texas things there is.
