At one time, more than 1,000 dance halls dotted the Texas countryside and served as community gathering places for neighbors, family and friends eager to share some fellowship, music, dancing and fun. Today there are fewer than 400 dance halls remaining. There is currently a strong effort to save this rich part of our Texas heritage. If you’d like to help preserve a piece of history, become a member of Texas Dance Hall Preservation (TDHP) and donate to support their efforts: https://texasdancehall.org/donation/
Following, you’ll find a list of our favorite boot skoot’n dance halls.
