LAST WALTZ

ABANDONED BALLROOMS IN EUROPE


In the 19th century, numerous bourgeois ballrooms were built that were financed by entrance fees. They were used for dancing, theater and music. But also by political parties, schools and other clubs. Many of these ballrooms were combined with restaurants. Mainly waltzes and other couple dances were danced there. Since the social importance of the balls dwindled, so increasingly after the end of the First World War, most ballrooms have been abandoned or demolished.
