About Our Dance Venue
We are thrilled to be able to return to the site of our 2017 Fly-In, the historic Sons of Hermann Hall! Located in the heart of Deep Ellum
, this venue received glowing reviews from our Fly-In attendees with its hard-wood dance floors (one of them newly restored), after-hours bar and music, and old-world charm. A bit of history about our venue...
The national fraternal organization Sons of Hermann was organized in New York in 1840 to help preserve German traditions while easing the transition of German immigrants into American Society. In 1910, four Dallas Sons of Hermann organizations filed for a charter to acquire a suitable building for meetings. The Sons of Hermann Hall
, our historic dance venue, was erected on Elm Street in 1910 and housed a Dance Hall, Bowling Alley, and meeting place. By the 1920s, the Sons of Hermann in Texas was one of the largest and most successful Fraternal groups in the Nation. Today, the Sons of Hermann in Dallas remains active in the Community with dances, parties and youth activities, and continues to serve the area through charitable activities, in keeping with the Sons of Hermann Motto, "FRIENDSHIP, LOVE AND LOYALTY."
