Sundance presents outdoor line dancing! On Saturdays we are in Stern Grove from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Beginning January 7 we are in Union Square on Thursdays from 6:00 to 8:00 pm for a limited engagement run.
We are bound by rules set by San Francisco for small outdoor gatherings. Attendance is limited, and everyone counts as a participant regardless of how much you actually dance. Masks are required, and we enforce social distancing.
You must be pre-registered to participate. Please don't show up without a reservation.
We take infection control precautions seriously! You must agree to our rules and complete an electronic Memorandum Of Understanding form each time you attend an event. You should do this within 48 hours prior to the event. A printed form is also available.
Thursday In The Square Thursdays • 6:00 - 8:00 pm
LOCATION AND PARKING
We are on the southeast part of the plaza of Union Square, on the side closest to Macy's. map
PARKING: There is a garage under Union Square, entrance off of Geary across from Macy's. It's $3 an hour after 6 pm, and $4 before 6 pm. Lots of free street parking, including yellow zones, opens up in the area at 6 pm. Just make sure you read all the signs on the meter *and* on the street. There are many tow-away lanes active from 4 to 6 pm. [The area is served by multiple MUNI lines and the Powell Street BART station.]
We are dancing in a coned-off section of the plaza. The surface is a polished stone that is surprisingly comfortable to dance on.
We have three rows of four dancers. You should line up between the cones arranged at the front and sides of our dance area. (Front is towards the terraced side / Post Street / Apple store.) Please maintain constant vigilance of the other dancers around you while you dance so we can stay 12 feet apart.
There is no designated social area. (Technically socialization is not allowed.) Store bags along the "back" of the dance area, where there is some seating. Because each seating sectional is only 6 feet long, only one person can sit in each section at a time. There is a free public restroom self-cleaning kiosk at the entrance to the parking garage on Geary opposite Macy's.
Saturday In The Grove Saturdays • 1:00 - 3:00 pm
LOCATION AND PARKING
We are on the stage of the concert meadow in Stern Grove, San Francisco. The main entrance to the park is at Sloat Blvd & 19th Ave. There are many other trail access points from Wawona St. or Vale Ave. map
PARKING: While there is limited parking inside the park (Stern Grove Entry Rd. or Vale Ave.), it may be full on a weekend. There is ample parking along Sloat Blvd., 19th Ave., or Wawona St. It's about a 1/4-mile walk down to the meadow from Sloat & 19th (follow the green paths on the map). [MUNI line 28; line M is nearby.]
The stage in Stern Grove has an excellent flat wood floor, but space is somewhat limited. We can fit 18 dancers and maintain our desired 12-foot spacing. San Francisco currently limits the number to 12.
We have two rows of six dancers. The cones along the front and sides are spaced 12 feet apart and will help you maintain your distancing. You should line up between the cones. Please maintain constant vigilance of the other dancers around you while you dance.
There is no designated social area. (Technically socialization is not allowed.) Store bags along the back wall of the stage. There are restrooms at the Trocadero Clubhouse on the other side of the Entry Road parking lot.
Masks are required at all times. If you must temporarily remove your mask, please step at least 30 FEET away from the dance and social areas and 30 feet away from other people (per SF order). (The stage in Stern Grove is 70 x 40 feet. Our Union Square dance area is 50 feet front to back.)
We require 12 FEET between dancers, and more is better. We will place orange cones to mark 12 feet. Dancers should line up between the cones at the front and sides, and start your dance in the center of a pod.
Maintain 6 FEET minimum between people at all times when not dancing.
Be extra careful when entering and leaving the dance floor, so you can continue to maintain your distance.
Do not crowd the DJ, who remains in a fixed location.
Do not congregate in groups. Move away from the dance area for socializing. Stern Grove explictly requires dispersal of the participants when the event is finished.
Partners and cohabitants must follow the same rules as other individuals.
