Sundance Saloon Is Temporarily Closed Limited line dance offerings continue
Due to the surging Covid-19 case counts in San Francisco and the emergence of the highly-transmissible Omicron variant, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close Sundance Saloon. Unlike the last time, we believe that this will be a relatively short hiatus, just long enough to get us through the Omicron surge.
We will continue to offer some dance opportunities, however. We're calling it Sundance Saloon Limited, as we return to an all line dance format with lessons (but no live-streaming) on Sunday evenings. Attendance is limited and advance registration is required. See the separate article for details.
And ... when it's time to reopen fully again, we're pretty sure we will be requiring boosters for all eligible fully-vaccinated attendees, so plan ahead and be prepared!
Sundance Saloon as we know it may be temporarily closed, but we continue to offer free line dancing with lessons on Sundays, limited to 24 attendees. Advance registration is required! We will also require proof of vax+booster, masks, social distancing, and pre-event Covid test ($10 fee).

2021: The Year In Review
Yikes! What a roller coaster of a year this was! We made the best of it all and found a way to reopen Sundance Saloon safely. Our many projects during the year included: Sundance In The Park – weekly outdoor line dancing. Sundance Saloon Online Live – live-streamed line dance lessons; Give Out Day fundraiser; Sundance Saloon Grand Re-Opening; Sundance Saloon Special Events – including Tomas' Road Kill Café, Halloween, and the Holiday Ball & Toy Drive.
We created a special year-end blog post featuring photos and videos as a reminder of all the good things that happened with the Sundance Association in 2021.
Sundance Music Playlists on Spotify
Now that we're on hiatus again, we'll remind you about our SUNDANCE SALOON PLAYLISTS on Spotify. First developed at the start of the pandemic shutdown, we've found that this service continues to help many Sundancers get through the day! 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.
Sundance Stompede May 25-29, 2022
The Sundance Stompede, our huge four-day country-western dance weekend, originally scheduled for September 3-6, 2020, and then postponed to May 27-30, 2021, is now scheduled for May 25-29, 2022, Memorial Day weekend. The 2022 Stompede will still host the annual convention of the International Association of Gay/Lesbian Country-Western Dance Clubs (IAGLCWDC).
Advance registration and hotel reservations are OPEN! Early registration is $149 for the entire weekend. The host hotel is again the Golden Gateway Holiday Inn on Van Ness Avenue. See you there! We can't wait!
Thanks to the support of our community, we ended 2021 in the black. And our Give Out Day earnings in both 2020 and 2021 have given us a tremendous boost. But the need for your financial support is never-ending, especially with this never-ending pandemic. There are many ways to help us!
Donate to our COVID-19 recovery fund, created specifically to help counter our losses from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
