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 six months. Of course we're happy to have you even for the occasional service. If you can help us out, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Introducing our own Sundance Saloon internet radio station! Whenever you want a dose of country-western dance music, check out the streaming at Sundance Saloon Radio. Guaranteed to make your day go by faster.
