The pandemic has been devastating to everyone in different ways. As a business that specializes in social contact and large gatherings, we lost most of what we built up prior and are doing what we can to recover. SGD stayed open through the pandemic offering choices and options for people to keep moving and socializing. Fitness IS essential and we will continue offering these options. Although we have kept pushing to fight through this, we need more support to keep going.
Like the rest of the population, we are very concerned about the future of our business. We do not want to close SGD or lose The Ballroom. It was a blessing we were able to keep it in the first place. Please see below on ways you can help with the continuation of Shawn Gardner Dancing and our re-branding plans that were meant to take place in summer of 2020 (now TBD).
Many people ask "How can I help?"

2.) SHARE our posts on social media such as Facebook & Instagram. We have many things going on at the facility so the more you share, the more people can get involved in supporting SGD as well!
3.) Spread the word about our SPACE available for rent. During this time, many events are getting cancelled and we are a great option due to the sheer size of our facility. We have 3 large ballrooms including tables, chairs, state-of-the-art lighting and sound, hardwood floors, viewing balconies, full kitchen, studio apartment, storage, a covered/heated outdoor space and more! With over 17,000 SF, we are great option for multi-room events to accommodate more people. We would appreciate you help spreading the word. See our RENTALS tab on the main menu for more info.
4.) Shawn Gardner Dancing is in need of VOLUNTEERS!
We always have things going on at the Ballroom and could use ALL the help we can get. From sewing, to handyman work to cleaning, greeting at events and more. If you are interested in helping out, please E-MAIL US.
Thank you so much for your support!
