Thank you for your patience as we renovate our webpage. It's taking a while, but getting closer to done. If you see anything broken or missing, please let us know at Info@SapphireDance.com. It might be a problem we already know about, but it might be a surprise. :-)

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!

During COVID-19, our Social Events are few and far between. Our fun, relaxing Dance Parties and Socials will be back. We're just not sure when. :(

Until then, if anyone would like to see an on-line social time start, let us know - we'd be thrilled to do it.
