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).

The Beach Ball Sunday, July 22
The summer's answer to our outlandishly popular winter underwear party! We'll decorate Sundance Saloon like a day at the beach. Here's your chance to dance in your Speedos, bikinis, or whatever beachwear you fancy. We'll have a special free coat check (clothes check?) available. Special event admission $8.
Note that participation in the beach party is totally optional. Lots of folks will be in regular dress. If you're a little shy but still want to participate, consider beach shorts and a T-shirt, or a wrap. We'll have a normal night of music and dance, so please come and enjoy yourself. And watch those heels on the sand!

Community Meeting Recap
At the Sundance Community Meeting on Thursday, June 14, we presented information about our financial state of affairs, and how our annual expenses are estimated to increase by $30,000 in the coming year. In addition to discussing ways of raising the funds to meet our expenses, we talked about ways of increasing attendance at Sundance Saloon.
In case you missed the meeting and are interested, we have documented it all here. Or check out our quick summary of how to help here:
All of the background information and details about the above are documented here.
Host a Group at Sundance Saloon
Inviting groups to an outing at Sundance Saloon is a nice opportunity for groups to socialize and build rapport outside of their usual environment. We have had some initial interest from corporate LGBT groups (e.g. Apple night at Sundance), nonprofit organizations (e.g. Gay Men's Chorus night at Sundance), and various Meetup.com groups.
Here are some types of groups that you might consider inviting to Sundance Saloon:
Invite a Meetup.com group to Sundance Saloon.Meetup.com has many groups organized under "LGBT" and "San Francisco" filters. If you belong to a Meetup group, invite them to have an outing at Sundance Saloon! Or find a group to join – there are dozens to choose from. Or create your own!
Corporate outings. If you work for a large company that has an LGBT social group, invite them to a group outing to Sundance Saloon!
Nonprofit organizations. We would love to host a nonprofit organization -- could be donors, volunteers, staff, and/or clients. For nonprofits we will extend special deal: all of the members of this group will receive free admission if they come on a Thursday.
Other groups. Do you have a connection to a group you think might enjoy a night out at Sundance Saloon?
