Country Dance-A-Thon

Country Dance-A-Thon
Saturday, August 18: 1:00–4:00 pm
Jane Warner Plaza, Castro & Market, S.F.

The Country Dance-a-Thon was our two-stepping and line dancing marathon that took place Saturday, August 18, at Jane Warner Plaza in the heart of San Francisco's Castro district! A joint project of Sundance Saloon and the Bare Chest Calendar, we're danced for three hours to support the PRC and Sundance Association.

It was a glorious day for dancing, and when it was over we had raised over $18,800! We'll continue to accept donations through August 31.

Sunday Streets SoMa
Sunday, August 19: Sundance @ 2:00-3:00 pm
Between 9-10th & Folsom, San Francisco

A new expansion of San Francisco's Sunday Streets series of free, fun events empowering local communities to transform 1-4 miles of car-congested streets into car-free community spaces. Folsom Street will be closed to traffic from 2nd to 10th Streets, 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, for folks to walk, dance, skate, bike, and explore. The area around 9th and 10th Streets will be hosted by the SF Leather Cultural District and SF Bay Area Leather Alliance.

Sundance will be there from 2:00 to 3:00 pm to give beginning lessons to the crowd. Come on down and lend a hand! We'll include some open dance time if we have a quorum of Sundancers.

Two Left Feet Meetup Club
Sundance Saloon

We have started a Meetup group aimed specifically at folks who have two left feet, or feel like they are hopeless cases, or are just plain terrified of even beginning level lessons. If this sounds like you, or if you know someone like this, then check out the Two Left Feet Club info page on Meetup.com. It costs nothing to sign up and join.

We'll have special extra-patient and ultra-beginning lessons up in the Red Room three Sundays in a row: September 9, 16, and 23. These lessons are separate from the regular beginning lessons in the Main Room, in a more private setting, paced nice and slow, and with absolutely no judgment.
