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.
Saturday at Cowboys Dancehall. Cowboys Dancehall 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. The address is 3030 NE Interstate 410 Loop, San Antonio 78218, 210-646-9378.
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. Lighting for the Jam will be bright, not disco… no strobe or flashing lights. Check the link to Lissa’s June newsletter for more details and some videos.
