SUNDANCE NEWS

Sundance Saloon

Sundance Saloon Closed Thru June

Sundance Saloon will be closed at least through the end of June. 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! A good reference is the World Health Organization's webpages: "Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) advice for the public." The CDC website and the San Francisco Public Health website also provide good 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

Online Live Set-Up Broadcast
Sunday, May 31 • 12:00 - 1:00 pm

We thought it might be fun to broadcast the set-up for the Sundance Saloon Online Live live-streams. You'll see how the audio system is put together, how the lighting is arranged, and how everything gets moved around in the garage to turn it into a cozy studio environment. Plus you can keep Ingu company while he works on the transformation.

Check back here closer to showtime for the link to the broadcast. (We'll use Zoom so we can see and talk with each other.)

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.

Supporting Sundance

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.
  • Give OUT Day. We need as many $10 donations as possible between June 1 and 30, to receive a special grant of up to $10,000. Details coming.
