Note: The information on this page is provided mostly by the local venues, bands, and dancers. This webpage is part of a larger website run by someone who is focused on swing dancing in Boston, Massachusetts and this page is provided as a convenience to readers who might be interested in looking for possible dance venues in Iowa. However, I do not live there and can't personally confirm every venue and their events. With that in mind, I suggest calling up the dance venues to confirm their dance events. Please write to dancenet@havetodance.com with any new information that you'd like to share. Review this website's publishing policies and information format guidelines before sending any information in.
