Our second annual Glow Night at Sundance Saloon! This was a big hit last year. You're encouraged to wear something that lights up or glows. That's all there is to it! This will be otherwise a normal night of lessons and dancing.

We'll have some glow sticks you can use to decorate yourself if you wish, but it's even more fun for you to dazzle us with your own creation. Hint: try a web search for "light up wearables."
