Sunday Dance April 7

John Yu

You are invited to the Sun Lakes Dance on Sunday, April 7, at Cottonwood’s San Tan Ballroom for the last dance of our 35th anniversary season. The longest private dance venue in Sun Lakes provides dinner, dance, and live music and has continued because of the support from Sun Lakes residents. We are open to the public as well, and no reservations or membership is required. Our dances have expanded to include country two-steps, line dancing, and nightclub two steps, in addition to the regular mix of waltzes, foxtrots, Latin dances, and swings. It’s what younger/newer residents enjoy these days. Our pop music has expanded to include not just Big Band but everything up to the ‘70s and ‘80s, with songs from Frank Sinatra, Johnny Cash, Jimmy Buffet, Fleetwood Mac, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Beatles, Eagles, and more.

Sunday evening is now more of a social event as well. In addition to couples, many groups and singles come, and non-dancers come just to enjoy the great live bands and songs. Dinner is available every Sunday evening, with 15 different items to choose from and served on the dance floor. Singles tables are also included.

Tables are configured to allow plenty of “space” to dance. Our bands never play too loudly as to drown out conversations at the tables. Our dress code is not formal but “club casual.” Anyone or couple can walk in to any one of our Sunday evening events without an invitation or reservation. Doors open at 5 p.m., and music starts at 5:30 p.m. and ends at 8:30 p.m. Dinner may be ordered between 5 and 7:30 p.m. with an open bar. Admission is just $10 per person (parties of eight or greater should call ahead to 480-699-7334 for group table reservations).
