1980 Harvest Moon Ball

Madison Square Gardens, New York - Wednesday, October 11th.


    The Harvest Moon Ball was one of the biggest couple dance contests for amateur dancers ever held in the United States. The HMB was held in New York at Madison Square Gardens as well as other cites throughout the U.S from 1935 to 1984. The 'Hustle' was again included in this years competition lineup and a new category called 'Battle of the Champions.'

 

    These are the Official HMB standings for the year 1980 and should not to be confused with the Mama Lu Parks Harvest Moon Lindy contest held during this year.
