      This page lists every indoor year around Dance Hall and Ballroom I have found that ever existed in the state of Wisconsin, both Past & Present. I have been told that in the 1950's it was possible to travel around the state every weekend, year around, and dance to a Polka Band, and/or a Big Dance Band. This is a list of where those dances were held, and in many cases, are still being held. Please write if you have corrections or missing details (address, current phone, exact date opened, exact date closed) for any of the Dance Venues listed, and/or details about one not listed.
