Dance Instruction at Sundance Saloon
Sundance Saloon is proud to offer many choices with our instruction program. Beginners are especially encouraged to take advantage of lessons twice a week. Smooth leather-soled shoes recommended (cowboy boots!), along with some patience and a desire to have some fun.
We offer most frequently instruction in two-step and line dancing. We also teach country waltz, east coast swing and west coast swing.

FIRST-TIMER GUIDE TO LESSONS
We always have beginning two-step lessons, so even if you've never danced before, we can get you going with the basics. We try to keep our lessons casual and with no pressure. Just remember to be patient with yourself, and most importantly have fun! And be on time!
Two-step is a partner dance, like ballroom dancing, but you don't need to come with a partner: we'll pair you up with someone. Our instructors rotate partners frequently, so even if you come with a specific partner, you'll have the opportunity to dance with different folks during the course of a lesson. (Switching partners is optional, but highly recommended.)
Line dancing does not require a partner. We teach a beginning-level line dance and a more advanced-level line dance at the same time in separate rooms starting at 6:30 pm on Sundays and 7:30 pm on Thursdays. If you are new to line dancing, we stongly suggest our 45-minute Sunday beginner line dance lessons. The Thursday lesson is shorter and may feel more rushed.
