This is Danceland, a 5000 square foot dance hall built in 1928 in the resort community of Manitou Beach. It began as a venue for big band music, but more recently has also been used to host a variety of other genres of music. It has hosted many famous artists, including, according to the owner, a very young and unknown Elvis in the 1950s. The most notable feature of the hall is the floor, which is cushioned by braided ropes of horse hair that span the width of the hall, under the maple floor boards. The braids are 10 inches in diameter, and spaced 4 feet apart. The owner says when there are 150 people or more dancing, you can actually see the floor move to the beat of the music, and the old-timers say they can dance for hours without getting tired. For more info, visit their website: http://danceland.ca/.

Tripod used for one second exposure. Sharpened.

This is a good shot of the old place. I might have cropped a little more off of the right side to make it completely symmetrical .. but I just like symmetry!

Hello Dave
I like the symmetry, the lines, triangles, rectangles, squares and circles of geometry :)

Nice and controlled exposure too.
I quite agree with Trudy about a little crop at the right :)
