DANCE HALL TOURS

It's time to get out of the city and back to the basics!


The Dance Hall Road Trip offers you a ride back in time to see where Texas music began. Visit the small rural communities that built, nurtured, promoted, and have passed along their traditions in the way of historic dance halls, many of which are now over a century old. Along the way we will learn some history, have a cold beverage or two, stop for some delicious food, and try to squeeze in a little bit of dancing before the day is through.
