Dreamland Dancing Pavilion, Minneapolis

Dreamland Dancing Pavilion was located across Fifth Street from the Courthouse in downtown Minneapolis. An article in the Minneapolis Morning Tribune on November 30, 1914 reported that, after nearly five years, Dreamland had voiced its swan song the previous night. The hall was to be converted to roller skating and rechristened "New Arcadia."

The end of Dreamland was blamed on new dance fads, which the manager called "freak dances." According to the manager, the average man danced for relaxation and did not care to spend time in training his feet in new fads.

  1. That looks like so much fun. And the dance fads that followed are gone now too. This really makes me want to step back in time.
