When You Want to Dance

For Country - Cowboys Red River

Cowboys Red River is known all over Dallas as the venue for any type of country dancing, from two-stepping to country swing dancing. If you want to experience a truly Dallas style honky tonk, Cowboys Red River is something to write home about - unless of course, you’re from Texas. 

Cowboys Red River hosts dance lessons almost every night of the week, so if you’re a two-stepping novice or want to try out some west coast swing, you can still hit the dance floor with confidence. 

For a Nightclub - Station 4

When you want a true nightclub experience, complete with cages, poles, and some of the best Drag shows in the city, Station 4 is where you want to be. 

For Blues and Swing - Sons of Hermann Hall

Even if you can’t swing dance, Sons of Hermann Hall is worth a visit. The city’s vibrant swing dancing scene is most prominent in this charming building that’s over a century old, and locals often dress up in vintage outfits, making you feel transported to another time. Beginner dance lessons are on Wednesdays.
