||Exhibit looks at the social value of music
People on stage weren't the only performers in ballrooms. Wearing ripped jeans or a tux,
slouching or high-stepping, people walk into nightclubs with
a look and an attitude
calculated to draw just the right amount of attention from just the right person.
Located in big cities, small towns, and along remote country roads, ballrooms were larger
than the typical neighborhood club and, with plenty of free parking, were magnets for young
people from miles around. Their spacious wooden floors were made for dancing.
In the exhibit, visitors can attend performances by visiting musicians.
