Discovery Thursday
Thursday, March 21
Sundance Saloon

We love our familiar tunes, but sometimes it's nice to be on the cutting edge and hear the new and exciting too. Welcome to Discovery Thursday!

For the first half-hour set, we'll feature all new music, never played before at Sundance Saloon. You can say you heard it here first! You'll even have a chance to indicate what songs you like best, which will influence the selections you hear in the future. Check it out!

Lessons at Sundance Saloon

Intermediate/Advanced Lessons
Thursdays • 7:00 pm
Sundance Saloon Main Room

Don't let the labels scare you. Our intermediate lessons are really designed for advanced beginners, as well as for advanced dancers who wish to perfect their technique.

Coming up:

• March 21 - Ingu presents a special two-step workshop on improving your "exchanges." Even if you are comfortable with exchanges, you will almost certainly still learn something new.
• March 28 - Ron Jenkins presents an advanced two-step workshop. Ron always finds a great pattern that is uncannily geared just right for the class.
• April 4 - Ingu will present a musicality workshop focusing on waltzes. Take your dancing (and your enjoyment of dancing) to a whole new level!

Western Hat Night
Thursday, March 28
Sundance Saloon

A special night for our cowfolks at heart. Wear your cowboy (or cowgirl or cowpoke) hat, and get $2 off your first beverage at the bar. (Sorry, your boater hat or baseball cap doesn't count!) Let's fill the club with a sea of western hats! Western boots encouraged too.

Sundance Saloon

Two Left Feet Meetup Club
Ultra-beginning CW dance lessons
Sunday, March 31 • 5:30 – 7:00 pm
Sundance Saloon: Loft

We have started a Meetup group aimed specifically at folks who have two left feet, or feel like they are hopeless cases, or are just plain terrified. If this sounds like you, or if you know someone like this, then check out the Two Left Feet Club info page on

We offer special extra-patient and ultra-beginning lessons. These lessons are separate from the regular beginning lessons in the Main Room, in a more private setting, paced nice and slow, and with absolutely no judgment. RSVP, or just show up!

Throwback Thursdays turntable

Throwback Thursday Night
Thursday, April 4
Sundance Saloon

The first Thursday of the month is our Throwback Thursday night. Take a trip down Memory Lane, or expand your appreciation of retro country music, with this tribute to the golden age of country.

For the first hour of open dancing (8:00 to 9:00 pm), we'll play some of the great country dance music from the 80s and 90s. Part of the fun is digging up old videos too!.

Sundance Saloon 21st Anniversary
Sunday, April 7
Sundance Saloon

Don't miss this special night of celebration as we mark the 21st anniversary of Sundance Saloon! Twenty-one years ago we opened our doors in the back room of the Pleasuredome at 174 King Street, never imagining that Sundance Saloon would become a world-renowned institution in the LGBT community, still going strong two decades later.

We'll have entertainment by the Sundance Bandits, Vima Vice Squad, and Clogging Express, and a moment to honor the hundreds of volunteers, donors, and other contributors over the years. FREE ADMISSION!
