SUNDANCE NEWS

March Birthday Dance
Sunday, March 3
Sundance Saloon

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 March , we'll see you on Sunday, March 3! On this night we also welcome the District 10 Pride meet-up group to Sundance Saloon.

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.

We present a 3-week series in instruction in "beginning-plu"s west coast swing with instructor Shin Aoki. This series if for folks who are comfortable with beginning WCS patterns (e.g. side pass, underarm turn, basic whip) to get them to the intermediate level. The class will run from 5:30 to 6:30 each week, followed by a directed optional practice session until 7:00 pm.

Advance registration is required. The class is limited to 8 leaders and 8 followers. The cost for the entire 3-week series is $20 payable in advance. Note that this is in addition to the regular admission charge each week at Sundance Saloon. No one will be turned away for lack of funds: if you are unable to afford the extra charge, please let us know.
