Visit our Square Store to pay online (and register at the same time) for classes and private lessons.

The lesson listing is updated about once a month, unless something unexpected happens. If you see less than a week's worth of several types of events, an update should be on its way. (We appreciate your patience as we try to keep everything up to date.)
Our typical schedule includes Friday Beginner Workshops, Line Dancing on 1st and 3rd Tuesdays, What's Next Classes and Workshops (not for beginners) on Mondays, and (seasonally) Date Night Dance Classes in Blacksburg on week nights.

Hips don't lie, and they don't sit still either

Rumba What's Next Workshop
Monday, February 6, 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

I danced with you once upon a dream...

Waltz Friday Beginner Workshop
Friday, February 10, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Always wanted to learn to dance but didn't know where to start? Start here. Start now. Waltz is slow, classic, and romantic - like dancing in a dream. We'll start easy and progress to elegant.
Missed last week? No problem. Each week we teach a 40-50 minute, "starting with the basics" lesson in a fun, popular dance style. And then, finish off the hour with a little taste of the style that will be on the schedule the later in the season.
It makes an awesome #DateNight, #ParentsNightOut, or just an evening of #FunWithFriends.

Location: Sapphire Studio
Price: $9/person in-studio (online available - contact us for details).
    Pay online and register at the same time at Sapphire's Square Store.
    Registration by noon the day of the event required. We will accommodate late registrations when we can. Zoom link for online classes provided with registration.
