Sundance Saloon Closed Thru August
Sundance Saloon will be closed at least through the end of August. Please check back here for updates. Sign up for our electronic newsletter here if you're not on our e-mail list already.
In the meantime, we're offering live-streaming line dance lessons and a mini-marathon on Sunday evenings. Check out the details here.
Most importantly, stay informed, healthy, and safe! The San Francisco Public Health website is a good source of information. There's a lot of misinformation being circulated. Trust only primary sources!
We hope to be dancing again at Sundance Saloon soon.
Sundance Saloon Online Live Sunday, July 5 • 6:00 - 9:00 pm PDT More info and tune in here
Sundance Saloon presents Sunday night live-streaming lessons during the COVID-19 shutdown! This Sunday's live-stream will present both a novice level and a reteach of our newsest intermeidate line dance.
Sundance In The Park Thursday, July 9 • 6:15 – 8:00 pm
Advance reservations required by noon 7/9
Sundance Saloon presents line dancing in Golden Gate Park. San Francisco now allows limited outdoor group exercise! We have created an ultra-safe environment. There are strict rules that everyone must understand and embrace.
Space is limited, and advance registration is required. We ask that you sign up whether you intend to dance or not. We will announce the online registration link during our Sunday night live-stream, and then post it here by noon on Monday.
Give Out Day - 2nd Place! Give Out Day ended June 30, 9:00 pm PDT
It was a nail-biter, and when the dust had settled, the Sundance Association was in second place nationwide in its category of mid-sized nonprofits, with the final results now confirmed by the Horizons Foundation. This means that Sundance has won a $5,000 prize grant. You can view the results here.
And regardless of the leaderboard prize, we can be proud of the truly astounding effort put forth by our community, with 1063 separate donors and a total of $22,847 raised. This turned out to be a real testament to the strength of the Sundance community.
Sundance Saloon has produced a series of Shelter-In-Place line dance videos, so we can stay at home and still dance as a community! Our latest creation is dedicated to the Black Lives Matter movement, featuring a new line dance to the song "Black Like Me" by Mickey Guyton: If you think we live in the land of the free, You should try to be black like me.
Get your very own Sundance Saloon face mask, and help reduce the spread of the coronavirus! There are five different designs to choose from. These are $15 each, or get all five for $60 (plus shipping, or free curbside pick-up)! These are comfortable cloth masks with adjustable elastic ear loops and contoured nasal bridge; machine-washable (gentle cycle). All proceeds benefit the Sundance Association.
Important: These are not medical grade masks. However, these will help to reduce the transmission of viruses from those who are infected.
Sundance Stompede POSTPONED to May 27-30, 2021
The Sundance Stompede originally planned for Labor Day weekend, 2020, has been postponed to Memorial Day weekend, 2021. The safety and comfort of our attendees takes precedence over everything else.
The Sundance Stompede is our magical four-day country-western dance weekend, featuring four nights of amazing dance parties and three days of equally amazing dance workshops, plus many social events, and more. In 2021 we will still welcome the annual convention of the International Association of Gay/Lesbian Country-Western Dance Clubs to the Stompede! We hope to see you next year.
Are you missing Sundance Saloon during the break? We hope we can put at least a little joy back in your life with our SUNDANCE SALOON PLAYLISTS on Spotify! You'll need a (free) Spotify account for basic listening privileges.
Sundance Saloon Line Dances. Not all music is available on Spotify, and sometimes we had to resort to different versions, but most of it is here! Here is the key (pdf file) matching line dances with the song titles and artists.
Like most nonprofits, we expect the COVID-19 pandemic to affect our finances negatively and significantly. The major ways to support the Sundance Association at this time are:
Donate to our COVID-19 recovery fund, created specifically to help counter our losses from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sundance Saloon Online Live. If you tune in, "pay" an optional admission fee by donating $7.
Become a member of the Sundance Association by pledging an annual tax-deductible donation.
