Help the Historic Gym

The SNC Historic Gym was built in the 1930s and upgraded in the 2000s. We've been dancing there together since 1980 and it holds a special place in our hearts. It's where memories were made and friendships formed through the joy of dance. Now, it needs our help.

The Tommy Deadwyler Memorial Gym Fund is dedicated to preserving this beloved space. With your donations, we can ensure that future generations experience the magic of dancing at this cherished venue. If you want to keep dancing, please consider donating today. Donate Now

Welcome Volunteers

The Sautee Community Dance at the Sautee Nacoochee Center is nothing without you. It is you! From the day it was founded the Center has been "joining hands" - bringing people together in a place that offers creativity, mutual support and fun.

As a dancer, musician or volunteer, you join the community in building something good, something of value, something that brings joy and cooperation to the world.

"Join hands" (volunteer) to make the dance happen by doing one or more of the following:

  • Speak to someone in the box office
  • Email
  • Call 706-878-3300
  • Complete a Volunteer Application: Volunteer Application

The Sautee Community Dance was built by many fine volunteers who knew how to "give weight", who helped make the dance happen over the years. From the founding committee to the folks who came early or stayed late, the ones who clean up or carry water, the countless musicians and sound techs who donated their talents and time, this dance could not be what it is today without volunteers.
