Oscar Night Sunday, February 24 • 5:00 pm
Sundance Saloon: Back Room
Don't want to have to choose between the Academy Awards and dancing? You don't have to!

We'll have our usual lessons in the Main Room from 5:30 to 7:15, followed by open dancing. Regular Sunday admission $5. Popcorn included.
We'll also have a send-off to Gary Ku and Cesar Sanchez, both moving on to new adventures.
Sundance Annual Photo Shoot Sunday, March 3
Sundance Saloon: Loft
Have your photo taken at Sundance Saloon for our publicity throughout the year. Resident photographer Troy Dean Wardlow will be shooting photos throughout the night up in the Loft. Please bring your cowboy hat to wear in the photo, or to lend to others to wear!
And, as this is the first Sunday of the month, we'll also have our March birthday dance.
Throwback Thursday Night Thursday, March 7
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!.
Intermediate West Coast Swing Sundays, March 10, 17, 24: 5:30 pm

Sundance Saloon presents a three-week series of intermediate instruction in west coast swing with Shin Aoki. This series assumes you have taken beginning west coast swing classes and are familiar and comfortable with the basics.

Intermediate West Coast Swing - Registration Information
This is a 3-week series: March 10, 17, and 24. The class will progress from one week to the next.
Advance registration is required. The class is limited to 16 (8 leaders and 8 followers). The cost for the entire 3-week series is $20 payable in advance (or $25 if paying at the first lesson, space permitting). 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.
Sundance Saloon is run entirely by volunteers. The managers, front door and coat-check staff, set-up crew, instructors, and DJs all donate their time to create this unique institution. The cumulative effort of dozens of volunteers keeps Sundance Saloon thriving and helps make it such a special place.
We need your help! We are recruiting new volunteers for the front door and coat-check, especially "core" volunteers who can commit to serving one hour a month for the next six months. Of course we're happy to have you even for the occasional service. If you can help us out, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
