        Ken,
                I did one of these renovation of a wood-framed building for second floor night club and dancing 20 years ago. It was 100 psf then, and IBC 2009 still says 100 psf for dance halls and ballrooms. It has changed hands at least 2-3 times since then, so my only real recommendation is not to base your design on what is happening now.
