Scuffletown Dancing Barn Continues to Offer Fun on Saturday Nights

Posted: Updated:

Tom Henry  was looking for a place that would provide some fun for people in the Upstate. Back in 1988, he knew about a line dancing place in Texas and thought, maybe it would work in Greenville?

"People said you're never gonna get people to come that far out of town to dance," said Henry.

He was determined to prove them wrong and before long, Henry remembers having 500 or more people there dancing to country western music.

"The two step, cha-cha, any kind of western, country that's what we do," said Henry.

He built Scuffletown USA and opened it but he then needed to find dancing instructors and a band. He posted signs and got a few phone calls so before long his establishment was up and running. Now after nearly 30 years the building has a new, smaller crowd but still offers people a good time and a place to dance.

Danny Brown used to go to the barn when he was younger.

"I was a shy kid and when I had my drivers license finally, a few buddies and I went. It was a great time and I even got a girls number," said Brown.

Years later Brown heard that Henry was getting up in age and offered to DJ, clean the place up and eventually take the reins. He retired some of the records and began using an iPod and put music video's on a big screen.

"I'm a technological kind of guy so I bring that to the place but I know Henry would use all records id he could" said Brown.

Brown is looking to continue to run the place like it's been run in the past but with a few more "Cupid Shuffle's and a "Wobble" or two. It's to keep the younger kids coming he said, and keep the place open for a long, long time.

Scuffletown is open from 7-11pm on Saturdays and lessons are offered Monday.
