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 1st contradance in the 2nd set. There were 3-4 lines of dancers before and after the break.
