The Texas Dance Hall Tour
is moving to Spring 2021!

Due to ongoing uncertainty and public health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Texas Dance Hall Preservation has decided to reschedule the Texas Dance Hall Tour from Fall 2020 to Spring 2021. We will share more information as those plans progress!

About the Texas Dance Hall Tour:

In 2017, 2018, and 2019, Western swing band Asleep at the Wheel — led by Texas Dance Hall Preservation board member Ray Benson in collaboration with TDHP — took Texas dance hall aficionados on a “land cruise,” showcasing multiple halls and other Texas bands during four days of dances and culture-rich daytime activities. Lifelong friendships were made among attendees, people from 24 states, Canada, and Australia learned about new-to-them dance halls.

“There wouldn’t be Texas music without our Texas dance halls…They’re like the Carnegie Hall of Western Swing and Texas Music!” – Ray Benson
