Description: On February 9, 1945, 24 young couples gathered in the recreation room of the South Tacoma Community Center, 4851 South Tacoma Way, under the watchful eye of an instructor, to tune up their dance skills for the upcoming Valentine's Day parties. Ballroom dancing was at its peak during World War II. The young dancers prepared to Swing, Lindy Hop and Foxtrot; bringing smiles of joy to the young ladies and only a few grimaces to the faces of the young men. The South Tacoma Community Center is operated by the Metropolitan Park District and is located at the corner of the 14 acre South Tacoma Park. TPL-9387
