1 - Blacksburg Group Classes

Our last full set of group classes for 2016 will be starting the last week in October, on Tuesday the 25th and Wednesday the 26th. As always, we have a little bit of every genre to keep you learning more ways to get on the dance floor. Here’s the rundown on the schedule:

TangoIf you are looking for a dramatic dance with lots of style you might consider the American Tango. Like all Ballroom dances it travels around the floor but what makes Tango stand out is it’s sharp movements to accent the staccato rhythm. This showy style is tons of fun!

Representing the Latin styles this session is the Rumba. It has a slow rhythm, allowing plenty of time to put the Latin “spice” into your dance. It is also great for many non-Latin tunes as well, which makes it a “go-to” dance style for any event.

WaltzIf you are looking for a Ballroom style but want to trade the drama of the Tango for some romance, then Waltz is one for you! Comprised of soft, round, flowing movements, Waltz is one of the most “classic” dances of the oldest styles as well! You can never go wrong with the Waltz.

West Coast Swing will be the Swing style to round out our Fall line-up. One of the more challenging swing styles, West Coast has a elastic look filled with exciting extension and compression. While this style is challenging it is also super cool and worth the effort. Like all of our Level 1 classes, we break it down and make it approachable for anyone!

The Class-By-Requests starting soon will be two continuation classes… Level 2 Fox Trot on Tuesdays at 8:15 and Level 2 Swing on Wednesdays at 6:00.

Check out all the details of each class at

Be on the look out in future newsletters for more information about the December Class-By-Requests and the Winter/Spring Schedule starting in January.

2 - Cheaper-Than-A-Movie Fridays... need no commitment and is always there for you!

CTAMWell, “always” might be slightly overstated, but practically always. With only a few exceptions, every Friday you will find us here at Sapphire’s Christiansburg studio at 7pm ready to dance! These workshops are so low commitment, you can decide to come to at the very last minute. Registration (online, by email, or phone) is helpful but not necessary. You can come to one...or you can come to several, it’s all up to you.

So, if you can’t commit to a 4 week class, or are not sure what style you would want to try if you could, these are a great way to try out partner dancing. Check out the line up at

Be sure to note that we will be missing a few Fridays with all the holidays coming up.
