Thanks to Joan and Rodney Wolf and Erv and Betty Zuber, modern dance was kept alive in the lakes area. With one letter, in 1983, they were able to gather enough dance enthusiasts to hire bands for a season, and the club was started. The Lakeside Dance Club thrived for 19 years at the Lakeside Ballroom in Glenwood. After a fire destroyed the beloved ballroom in 2003, the club was set adrift for two years but survived to return to the all new Lakeside Ballroom with the opening dance in August, 2005. Many club members donated to the Re-Building of the Ballroom. Now dancers come from all over Minnesota, to one of the only outstate venues for ballroom dancing. Many dancers have been dancing together since meeting at the ballroom years ago. Many, new to dance, continue to gather at the ballroom enjoying the live bands playing true ballroom dance music.
