The Trianon Ballroom was famous for its efforts to "uphold the standards of young people" since its inception in 1922. Dancers were not allowed to "spoon" or "pet" between dances. The ballroom also refused service to blacks and would only hire white bands. This racial exclusivity and the declining interest in dancing let to the Trianon's closing in 1958.
