City of Hallandale Beach - City of Choice
Town of Hallandale Beach
Hallandale officially became a town on May 14, 1927. By that time, there were 1,500 residents, street lights, and electricity in the community. In 1947, Hallandale was reincorporated as a city, and was allowed to annex land to the east. In August of 1999, the city officially changed its name to Hallandale Beach.
Original Indian Hunting & Gathering Area The area that is now known as Hallandale Beach was not even settled until the late 1800's, when Henry Morrison Flagler expanded the Florida East Coast Railway to Palm Beach in 1895. Before then, there wasn't much to Hallandale Beach except swamp and a gray, sandy soil called marl. The Seminole Indians would hunt in the area and gather cootie root, which was used to produce starchy dough.
First Settlement Flagler recruited Luther Hallande, son of a Swedish minister and brother-in-law to one of Flagler's agents, to start a Swedish settlement south of the Danish settlement of Dania. With the assistance of an immigrant named Olaf Zetterlund, Halland began promoting the frost-free subtropical climate and cheap land of Halland (later to be named Hallandale). Halland set up a small trading post in the new community and became its first postmaster.
Farming Community Settlement was slow, with only a dozen families in town by 1900 – seven Swedish, three English, and two black. The first school was built in 1904 and had only ten students. The first church, Bethlehem Lutheran, was established in 1906. Originally, Hallandale was a farming community, with farmers using the beach only for recreation.

They deserve praise for all their hard work!
All participants at this year’s Congress agreed that it was a huge success. It brought new ideas to light that will be a useful guide for the continuing work of CID. Those ideas will also be helpful to the other dance organizations throughout the world. CID is a challenging endeavour. No matter what occur during the four days of this congress it was resolved by excellent team work. Just like every dance research congress, this year`s congress consisted of three forms of presentation:
Many registered participants unfortunately could not attend because they did not obtain entry visa. We can still conclude that it was a very successful Congress. It was a platform where participants managed to answer some very important questions about the current state of the dance world. It helps to point out possible problems that may occur within the dance communities.
I want to simply summarize the main conclusions of some of the workshops. I will also emphasize the importance of the informal conversations had during the participant free time while socializing after the formal workshops and presentations. These conclusions can be divided into three basic directions namely:
1) The need to bring couple dancing to the youth at elementary level within the school system. Moving dance to a higher level of education to promote cultural diversity.
2) The need to emphasize the importance of dance exercise therapy and other forms of treatment with the use of choreography.
3) The need for better organisation within the dance community to promote and protect the interests of dance professional world-wide.
My conclusion is that, this Congress proved the constant progress of the work of CID in all of its forms. During the congress we pointed out some obstacles. Even though there are problems in the dance world, we also concluded there are many ways of solving them. We need to bring all CID Sections to work together under one platform.
Many thanks, once again, to all the participants. We can freely say that the main goals of the 4th International Congress have been achieved and the congress was a success.
Every year we look forward to this amazing event in Broward County, with some amazing international artists and local dance teachers. Ever since the first Congress in 2015, we have registered a lot of new members to CID.
Looking forward to the Next “CID World Congress on Dance Research in USA November 13th—17th, 2019”
