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 handle 6 lines of contradancers.

This was the last dance before the break. There were 4-5 lines of dancers before the break and 3-4 lines after.
