Our huge country-western dance extravganza, featuring four nights of dance parties, three days of dance workshops, and hundreds of attendees from all over the country (and beyond).

Sundance Saloon Celebrates 20 Years April, 2018 - Free admission all month!
Sundance Saloon celebrates 20 years in the community with FREE ADMISSION the entire month of April! (Donations gladly accepted.) This offer is made possible by a generous donation from the estate of Uncle Rod.
We had a wonderful 20th Anniversary Party on April 8, featuring entertainment by the Sundance Bandits, Barbary Coast Cloggers, Vima Vice Squad, and Clogging Express. Check out the 3-minute Anniversary Party video. And thanks to the hundreds of volunteers and donors who contributed to Sundance over its 20 years!
Rod George, known to us as "Uncle Rod," was an ardent supporter of Sundance Saloon since its beginnings twenty years ago. He had a special interest in encouraging beginners and keeping them engaged. He volunteered frequently and enjoyed staffing the sound system in the Green Room (now Cocoa Room) for lessons at Sundance Saloon. He was a fixture at Sundance Saloon, dancing well into his 80s. His joyous presence was sorely missed after his passing in 2017. Uncle Rod generously remembered the Sundance Association in his will, allowing us in turn to honor his memory by offering free admission to Sundance Saloon for our entire 20th anniversary month.
