This is the second in a series of blog posts based on the themes in the exhibition.
Music, dance, social occasions and weddings
Music and dance were mostly the domain of the two Yugoslav organisations, the Yugoslav Club Inc., and the Yugoslav Benevolent Society (The Croatian Benevolent Society). Annual Ballroom competitions were conducted and cups were given out to the best foxtrot, waltz and tango dancers.
