dance!

Hey guys - COVID is Evil. Dance is GOOD.
It would be a shame to loose one because of the other.
Let's all wear our masks OK?

Masks are required in studio. Find out more about the CDC risk levels here.
We will cease requiring masks when we have been down-graded to "Medium" for more than a week. There's a lot of yellow around us so there's hope!

Social Events

Social Events are for all dancers, no matter their skill level. Social dance is much about the people as the dancing, and these events make the "Social" a highlight!

Friday, September 30, 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm - Practice Session

Don't you need a nice, fun, relaxing, no-pressure thing to do at the end of the week? There's no alcohol at this happy hour, just a few cool people dancing to fun music. It's not as involved as a Dance Party, but it is a nice, relaxed chance to practice some of your favorite dance moves. As always, feel free to ask for your favorite tunes or dance styles at the party!
Price: It's up to you (suggested $5-$10/person) Registration is still required - let us know if you are coming: info@sapphiredance.com
While no one dances to all the music at a practice session, we suggest you be comfortable with at least a few styles. Otherwise, you might be watching more than dancing - way less fun. Read more about .
