Friday at International Folk Culture Center.  Open dance and the Pre-Jam Party will be at the International Folk Culture Center on the campus of Our Lady Of The Lake University.  Many dancers are familiar with its great “sprung” dance floor.  The IFCC is about a 25 minute drive from Cowboys Dancehall about 3 miles from downtown San Antonio.  The campus is the safest in town and easy to find from major highways.  Check the newsletter links for info on how to get to the campus.



Cowboys Dancehall Outside

Saturday at Cowboys Dancehall.   Cowboys claims to be the largest honky tonk dance hall in Texas… and it certainly looks as if it may be.  Y’all know we make ‘em big in Texas!  This is a new location for the Jamboree, and it looks as if it will be a lot of fun.  Cowboys is easy to find.  Check Lissa’s newsletters for maps and driving directions.  The address is 3030 NE Interstate 410 Loop, San Antonio 78218, 210-646-9378.  Doors open at 8:00 AM Saturday.  Music begins about 9:30 AM and will continue until 5:30 PM.  Note… room temperature at Cowboys is about 65 degrees which is great for dancing, but if you’re not dancing, you might want to bring a sweater.

Dance Floor at Cowboys

Dance Floor at Cowboys


This is Cowboys Dancehall on the inside during a Zumbathon in May, 2015.  700 dancers were reported in attendance, so there’s plenty of room.  They have an outstanding sound system and large Jumbotron screens which allows everyone to see the stage regardless of where they are.  Lighting for the Jam will be bright, not disco… no strobe or flashing lights.  For more details, check Lissa’s newsletters for June, August, and September.

For a registration form or to register online, please check the Registration page, and you can check the Jam Agenda here.
