Texas Dance Hall Preservation presents a new photography exhibit, Two-Step Your Way Through Time in Historic Texas Dance Halls. Conceived as a “visual tour” of historic halls, the exhibit debuted on June 4 at the Patrick Heath Public Library, 415 North Main Street, Boerne, Texas. The Boerne Library system’s music-themed Summer Reading Program this year celebrates music and history in Central Texas communities.

The exhibit is free and open for viewing in the Library Gallery from June 4 through July 8 during regular library hours, Mondays–Thursdays, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Fridays, 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.; and Saturdays, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Can’t make it to Boerne? You can view all of the images in the exhibit and order your own copies here.


Special thanks to sponsors Cynthia Inman of Ranch Connection LLC and Greg Sales of Duncan Springs Farms, whose generosity made this exhibit possible.

Photographers who provided images for the exhibit include Deborah Fleming, Gary E. McKee, Dave Norris Photography, and Wendy Schutt; Lee and Judi Temple, owners of Kendalia Halle,  contributed a photograph by Jennie Trower.

On July 18, starting at  the Library will host a brief reception in the gallery, followed by a talk by TDHP executive director Deb Fleming in the Community Room on historic dance halls and their importance to the communities in which they are located. The public is invited to both events.
