PLEASE READ: Website Updates
As you can see, we are currently in the process of updating the website and have been experiencing some technical issues. We are in the process of helping all our functions, including the contact forms and schedule, to get working as they should be. The ballroom is open and all dances and lessons are happening as usual, but it might be a few days before the schedule reflects these changes. While we are going through these updates, you can find information on upcoming dances by visiting the Lake Robbins Facebook page or by calling the ballroom at 515-438-2305. Thank you for your patience!
Built For Dancing
Lake Robbins Ballroom was constructed by Mr. Riley Robbins beginning in 1929 next to a manmade lake to the southwest of Woodward, Iowa. Since its opening night, it has been the venue for countless dances, concerts, and weddings.
Today, the ballroom continues to host bands from around the Midwest for live music and dancing on Saturday and Sunday nights. Classic dances like jitterbug swing, foxtrot, waltz, tango, polka, and more are part of an evening lineup. Before almost every dance, an hour-long lesson is offered, which provides dancers of any skill level with an opportunity to learn and improve. Lake Robbins is also an acclaimed venue for wedding receptions and school events.
Before the music begins, spend an hour learning new moves from a variety of dances. There is content for every skill level!
From big band to country western to rock and roll, Lake Robbins has dances with a number of different bands.
Holidays like Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentines Day all have special dances. Watch the schedule page for details!
