Dance Hall Rock is a large sandstone amphitheater located 42 miles down the Hole-in-the-Rock Road. On their way to establish a settlement, Mormon pioneers in 1879-80 spent two months waiting for a road to be built to the Colorado River. Dance was an important part of Mormon society, and the good acoustics of the natural stone amphitheater appealed to the pioneers.
