Beach Ball at Sundance Saloon

The Beach Ball
Sunday, July 21
Sundance Saloon

The summer's answer to our outlandishly popular winter underwear party! We'll decorate Sundance Saloon like a day at the beach. Here's your chance to dance in your Speedos, bikinis, or whatever beachwear you fancy. We'll have a special free coat check (clothes check?) available. Special event admission $8.

Note that participation in the beach party is totally optional. Lots of folks will be in regular dress. If you're a little shy but still want to participate, consider beach shorts and a T-shirt, or a wrap. We'll have a normal night of music and dance, so please come and enjoy yourself. And watch those heels on the sand!

We need extra volunteers for set-up and the clothes-check. E-mail volunteer@sundancesaloon.org.

Throwback Thursdays turntable

Throwback Thursday Night
Thursday, August 1
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 and music videos from the 80s and 90s.

Country Dance-A-Thon

The Country Dance-a-Thon is a two-stepping and line dancing marathon taking place Saturday, August 17, at Jane Warner Plaza in the heart of San Francisco's Castro district! A joint project of Sundance Saloon and the Bare Chest Calendar, we're dancing for three hours to support the PRC and Sundance Association.

Sign up now to participate and raise funds from your friends and family. We make it easy for you! Or donate to the event on behalf of a participant. Last year we raised over $20,000 for charity. Let's see if we can equal or beat that amount this year.

Two Left Feet Meetup Club
Ultra-beginning CW dance lessons
Sunday, August 11 • 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 Meetup.com.

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!
