Our premier education center and 5,000 square foot dance hall needs a new roof and other critical maintenance items. To make these updates and continue supporting heritage dancing in Southern Arizona, SARDASA is having a fund raiser on April 25, 2020. We are inviting the public to sample different dance styles: square dance, round dance, line dance, contra dance and clogging. The event will be free and include a silent auction designed to raise funds. We are asking members to contribute new items or request donations from businesses for the silent auction. Below is a letter that members may print and provide to local area businesses. Please contact committee chair Elaine Royer with further questions.
To help grow our community SARDASA has joined the Meetup social network and will be promoting events and dance lessons aimed at new dancers. Please share our new page with your friends and support heritage dancing in Southern Arizona! Our link is: www.meetup.com/Old-Pueblo-Dancers
