I think you could defintly do it in the yard/ravine.  Instead of renting a dance floor, provide a filp flop basket for the ladies wearing heels, or specify on your wedding website not to wear heels.  I would use a few tall centerpiece/floral arrangements/potted plants to mark the corners of the dance floor,maybe some shepherd crooks with hanging candles along the edges. Does the venue provide tents and lighting?  If not it may still be expensive to do it outdoors even without the dance floor.  Is the area in front of the barn big enough to put up a tent and make that the dance floor?  If you can post some pics it might be easier for us to give you some ideas.

I’m renting a dance floor because I’ve never tried breaking it down on grass before.  Are both areas close so that you can utilize both of them?  I’m not tenting my dance floor because I thought it would cool dancing under the stars.   If there is a space in front of the bar that could be used for dancing I think that would be great.

Can you have the best of both worlds? Open the barn doors wide and have a dance floor just out there. That way you get to have your inside reception and an outside dance florr. You could put some seating around the dance floor as well (benches, hay bales etc)
