Klint Kendrick

Guest Instructor Klint Kendrick
Intermediate Two-Step
Thursday, December 13 • 7:00 pm
Sundance Saloon

Sundance Saloon welcomes guest instructor Klint Kendrick on Thursday, December 13, for a special intermediate two-step workshop. ​

Klint Kendrick started country-western dancing over a decade ago ago when a man mistook his cowboy hat for dance ability and dragged him onto the floor for a spin. After taking several months to recover from that trauma, he found that others mistook the cowboy hat for dance ability and asked him to explain certain moves. Klint has taught regularly at Cuff Country and the Emerald City Hoedown in Seattle. He now lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Sundance Saloon volunteers

Sundance Core Volunteers Needed

Sundance Saloon is run entirely by volunteers. The managers, front door and coat-check staff, set-up crew, instructors, and DJs all donate their time to create this unique institution. The cumulative effort of dozens of volunteers keeps Sundance Saloon thriving and helps make it such a special place.

We need your help! We are recruiting new volunteers for the front door and coat-check, especially "core" volunteers who can commit to serving one hour a month for the next six months. Of course we're happy to have you even for the occasional service. If you can help us out, contact

Year-End Giving To Sundance

The Sundance Association is a member-supported 501c3 nonprofit organization, and we depend on the generosity of the community to sustain us, especially as our expenses continue to mount. Members of the Sundance Association pledge an annual donation (which is tax-deductible if you itemize).

If you're not yet a member, please consider making a contribution now. If you're already a member, consider an extra donation in this time of need. Please remember also to check with your employer to see if they offer matching grants.
