    Public

    Discover the extraordinary range of popular dance music composed and published in Australia, and meet the people who played it.

    A boom in social dancing before the First World War gave rise to more frequent use of public spaces for dancing, conversion of buildings into palais de danse and building of new dance halls.

    Meet musicians who played popular music for dancing in Australia in the first half of the twentieth century.
