Sundance Saloon Beach Party
Sunday, July 20

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.

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.

Johnny Quarto-vonTivadarWe present a 3-week beginner series teaching the basics of west coast swing with instructor Johnny Quarto-vonTivadar. No experience is necessary, though some familiarity with partner dancing may be helpful. This series is also recommended for intermediate-level dancers wishing to review and refine their basics.

The cost for the entire 3-week series is $16 payable in advance (or $20 if paying at the first lesson).  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 Volunteers Needed

Sundance Saloon volunteerDid you know that 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. It is the cumulative effort of dozens of volunteers that keep Sundance Saloon thriving and make it such a special place.

We are continuing to recruit new volunteers for the front door and coat-check, especially those who can commit to serving one hour a month on Sundays. If you can help us out, contact
