As the Great Depression descended, dance marathons were all the rage in America during the early 1930’s. Ann Lawanink holds her partner, Jack Rirof as he sleeps during a dance marathon at the Merry Gaedon Ballroom in Chicago, May 29, 1930. There are eight couples and one single left on the floor after 1,145 hours (that’s 47 days) of the marathon. We don’t know who won.
