Sundance Saloon Reopening III Face masks and vax no longer required
Starting Sunday, September 4
Come and celebrate with us on September 4 as we reach the final step in our phased year-long reopening! At long last we predict that Covid transmission in the Bay Area will be low enough that face masks will no longer be required at Sundance Saloon (though still recommended), nor will we require proof of vaccination. This date is subject to change, depending on Covid transmission trends.
Our goal throughout the pandemic has been to create and maintain as safe a space as we can. If you wish to read more about how we assess risk and determine our policies, visit our "reopening page" for a discussion.
Line Dance 101
New beginner series begins September 4.
Sundays 6:30 pm • Thursdays 7:30 pm
Learn to line dance, even if you have two left feet! We always teach a beginner-level line dance every night that we are open, allowing 45 minutes on Sundays and 30 minutes on Thursdays. The Thursday lesson is generally a review of the Sunday lesson, offering you an extra opportunity to learn the steps.
We embark on a new Line Dance 101 series on September 4, starting with our most basic line dances and gradually progressing in complexity over the next three to four months. By the end of the series, you will have a dozen line dances in your repertoire and will have the confidence to progress to more intermediate dances.
Sundance Birthday Dance Next: Sunday, September 4
it's back! On the first Sunday of the 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'll also have cake (actually cupcakes to make it easier to serve safely).
If your birthday is in September, we'll see you on Sunday, August 4!
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.
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 recruiting volunteers for the period July through September, and we are coming up extremely short. 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 has 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.
