REMARKS: The Spanish Ballroom is a superb dance venue. Built in 1933 and restored in 2003, the art deco style ballroom has a wonderful sprung 7,700 SF maple floor which can easily handle 6 lines of contradancers.
This was the first dance in the 2nd set. There were four lines of dancers before the break and three lines after. There was a bumper crop of new dancers too - over 50!
