There have been open-air dance floors in the villages since the 1880s. This dance floor was built in modern times but shows what they looked like in the 1920s.

The dance floor was often located in a leafy grove on the edge of the village. A secluded location was advantageous, as some felt that dancing and folk music encouraged a life of sin.

The dance floors were used mainly by the young people, and when the bicycle became a common means of transport, they could cycle dozens of miles to dance on the most popular dance floors.
