Throwback Thursdays turntable

Throwback Thursday Night
Thursday, March 7
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 volunteers

Sundance Core Volunteers Needed

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
