Spring is dance hall season in Central Texas’ Hill Country, time for festivals, weddings and fundraisers before the summer heat descends.
The state once filled about 1,000 dance halls. Now there are about 400. https://lat.ms/2WmQblF
Hundreds of other dance halls, Texas traditions, survived the 19th and 20th centuries only to shutter in the 21st. Many across the state were built by immigrants.
Now, many people are trying to save the remaining halls.
