Western Hat Night Thursday, March 28
A special night for our cowfolks at heart. Wear your cowboy (or cowgirl or cowpoke) hat, and get $2 off your first beverage at the bar. (Sorry, your boater hat or baseball cap doesn't count!) Let's fill the club with a sea of western hats! Western boots encouraged too.
Intermediate/Advanced Lessons Thursdays • 7:00 pm
Sundance Saloon Main Room
Don't let the labels scare you. Our intermediate lessons are really designed for advanced beginners, as well as for advanced dancers who wish to perfect their technique.
• March 28 - Ron Jenkins presents an advanced two-step workshop. Ron always finds a great pattern that is uncannily geared just right for the class.
• April 4 - Ingu will present a musicality workshop focusing on waltzes. Take your dancing (and your enjoyment of dancing) to a whole new level!
Two Left Feet Meetup Club Ultra-beginning CW dance lessons
Sunday, March 31 • 5:30 – 7:00 pm
Sundance Saloon: Loft
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. 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.
We offer special extra-patient and ultra-beginning lessons. 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. RSVP, or just show up!
Throwback Thursday Night Thursday, April 4
The first Thursday of the month is our Throwback Thursday night. Take a trip down Memory Lane, or expand your appreciation of retro country music, with this tribute to the golden age of country.
For the first hour of open dancing (8:00 to 9:00 pm), we'll play some of the great country dance music from the 80s and 90s. Part of the fun is digging up old videos too!.
Dancing at Jane Warner Plaza Saturday, April 6: 1:00–3:00 pm
Castro & Market, San Francisco
Kick off our 21st anniversary weekend with another fun afternoon of outdoor dancing with Sundance in the heart of the Castro on Saturday, April 6. (Rain date - April 13.) We'll include ultra-novice lessons to get the passersby involved.
Thanks to the Castro/Upper Market Community Benefit District for organizing this event. Future dates at Jane Warner Plaza include June 22, and August 17 (Country Dance-A-Thon).
Sundance Saloon 21st Anniversary Sunday, April 7
Don't miss this special night of celebration as we mark the 21st anniversary of Sundance Saloon! Twenty-one years ago we opened our doors in the back room of the Pleasuredome at 174 King Street, never imagining that Sundance Saloon would become a world-renowned institution in the LGBT community, still going strong two decades later.
We'll have entertainment by the Sundance Bandits, Vima Vice Squad, and Clogging Express, and a moment to honor the hundreds of volunteers, donors, and other contributors over the years. FREE ADMISSION!
