You may have or know someone who has a barn you could use. Also, you don't have to have a barn to do a barn
dance. Many successful square dances are held in church halls, school cafeterias and gyms, VFW and American Legion Halls,
YMCAs, club halls, home basements and outbuildings, etc. Sometimes a little more decoration is required to create
an atmosphere in these spaces, but it doesn't have to me much. Once people are dancing and having fun, they'll hardly
notice what type of a building they're dancing in.
