Thanks for your support on #GivingTuesday!

Thanks to everyone who donated to Texas Dance Hall Preservation on #GivingTuesday last week. We set a goal of raising $5,000 for critical repairs for dance halls, such as roof leaks and faulty electrical wiring, which can lead (and have led) to losing important halls around the Lone Star State.

Generous donors stepped up to give a total of $4,818 so far!

TDHP is heading into our 11th year with a full head of steam, and we need your help to continue helping Texas dance halls survive and thrive! We provide grants for building repairs, direct assistance to dance hall owners, and developing resources that cover everything from how to book a band, to fundraising for building projects, to dance hall business management.

It’s not too late to make a #GivingTuesday gift … just click here:

Thanks for joining us for the 2nd Texas Dance Hall Tour!

We had a great weekend with Asleep At The Wheel & Ray Benson, Dale Watson, The Derailers, Jamie Lin Wilson, and Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis on the 2nd Texas Dance Hall Tour! Thanks to everyone who came out, from the full-tour attendees to all of our old and new friends who dropped in for one of the four nights of dancing. It was such a pleasure to introduce you to Texas’ “round” dance halls in Galveston, Cat Spring, Peters Community, and Bellville. Thanks to everyone who made this possible, including Sam Seifert, Liz Foster, Ellie Newman, PJ Herrington, and the Asleep at the Wheel crew.

Deb and Steph also want to thank all of the folks who came out to the dances, asked us to dance, signed up for the TDHP newsletter, and joined as new members. We especially want to thank our five new Lifetime members! We enjoyed seeing all of you and getting to meet new friends.

Want to join us for the next tour? Visit to get all the info as soon as it’s available. See you on the dance floor!
