December Birthday Dance Sunday, December 3
On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate the birthdays of everyone who has a birthday during that month. One dance is designated when we invite the birthday folks to the dance floor, and everyone gets a chance to take turns dancing with them. We also provide cake (well, actually a wonderful assortment of gourmet cupcakes)!
If your birthday is in December , we'll see you on Sunday, December 3!
Holiday Ball & Toy Drive Sunday, December 10
Join us for our annual Holiday Ball, 5:00 – 10:30 pm on Sunday, December 10. This is a truly special event with plenty of good cheer and good company, our most festive of the year! Dance to a mix of your holiday and non-holiday favorites, with special surprises all night long.
SET-UP VOLUNTEERS NEEDED on both December 3 and December 10 starting at 3:30 and 3:00, respectively. E-mail us at email@example.com if you can help.
Line Dance Mini-Marathons Select Sundays • 7:00-7:15 pm
December 3, 10, 17
We often play bonus line dances when lessons end early on Sundays. We're going to formalize this a bit, so you can plan ahead. On nights when we are teaching a low-intermediate level line dance in the main ballroom, we'll play a bonus set of four line dances starting at 7:00 pm.
In December we'll plan for mini-marathons on December 3, 10, and 17. You'll be abe to view the schedule in our regular calendar.
Line Dance Pro Sundays (except 1st Sun of month) • 5:00-6:30 pm
Can't get enough line dancing? Line Dance Pro is an opportunity to increase your line dance abilities and challenge yourself with new line dances not included in our regular Sundance Saloon repertoire.
Our Line Dance Pro sessions run every Sunday in the Back Room of Sundance Saloon (except the first Sunday of the month)! Includes lessons starting at 5:15 pm, except the last Sunday of the month which features a line dance marathon. Check the Sundance Saloon instruction calendar for the schedule.
You're invited to another session when we'll have a number of Sundance Saloon instructors on hand, and you can pick one to hoard all to yourself for 10 minutes. This experience is appropriate for all dancers from the beginner-plus to intermediate level.
You and your chosen instructor will decide what to focus on, and you'll have ten minutes for feedback and practice. We recommend sticking to one foundational technique concept rather than trying to cover a complicated move. On this night we'll have Charles Sterck, Kirk Ryan, Ron Jenkins, and Ingu Yun available at your service.
Just show up, and sign up for a session. Slots will be available on a first-come, first-signed-up basis. Doors open at 6:30 pm. If time and space allows, you may be able to sign up for more than one session. There is no additional fee for this experience.
Stompede Documentary Help fund this important project!
A documentary about The Last Stompede is coming together! Graham Clayton-Chance, an internationally-recognized gay filmmaker from the United Kingdom, production company xFilm, and award-winning cinematographer Casey Regan, are working together to preserve the final Stompede on film, with a focus on the community behind it and the impact the Stompede has had on our lives.
We need donations! Graham is filming this documentary as a gift and not for profit. And funds have been successfully raised at the minimum level. However, additional donations will help obtain music rights to commercial songs, produce a higher-quality film, and get a head start on distribution to film festivals. This is a true community project reflective of the Stompede, with many small donations adding up to create something big!
(£100 = US$125)
Year-End Giving To Sundance
The Sundance Association is a member-supported 501c3 nonprofit organization, and we depend on the generosity of the community to sustain us, especially as our expenses continue to mount. Members of the Sundance Association pledge an annual donation (which is tax-deductible if you itemize).
If you're not yet a member, please consider making a contribution now. If you're already a member, consider an extra donation in this time of need. Please remember also to check with your employer to see if they offer matching grants or grants for volunteer time.
Sundance Saloon Volunteers Needed
Please help us! Sundance Saloon is a community effort, dependent on lots of people chipping in a little bit. We are always looking for more help, and this has never been more true. We are currently signing up volunteers for Sundays through December, and we still have LOTS of shifts remaining to be filled. We also have some need for volunteers on Thursdays. If you have not volunteered in the past, this is a great time to think about stepping in.
Our needs at Sundance Saloon include set-up, front door, and coat-check. Shifts are generally one hour. No experience necessary.
As an all-volunteer, member- and community-supported organization, the Sundance Association depends on your support to keep thriving. The pandemic put an extra burden on our finances, and our needs are never-ending. There are many ways to help us, and not all of them involve monetary contributions:
Become a member of the Sundance Association by pledging an annual tax-deductible donation.
Come on down! Support us just by showing up.
Introduce someone new to Sundance Saloon.
Use our coat-check on Sundays.
Put a dollar or two in one of our tip jars.
See if your company offers matching donations or grants for volunteer time served.
