Texas Dance Hall Preservation — Newsletter

Quarterly Newsletter for Texas Dance Hall Preservation; August 2018

I love a good Texas road trip — especially one that involves visiting dance halls and meeting their owners and sta , community historians, and passionate dance hall lovers. In recent months I have enjoyed learning about some new halls such as Boerne Shooting Club Hall and Hye Hall. I was also able to meet some hall owners in person that I have only spoken with by phone previously (Cherry Spring Dance Hall, Gillespie County).

These encounters are always rich exchanges of information, stories and history; as well as discussions about their challenges and hopes for the future. I carry these encounters with me as the sustenance for the work we strive to do at TDHP. These road trips to visit halls are like mini-vacations — they always re-energize me!
