Milonga - Friday, October 19, 2018

If you do Argentine Tango, no matter how much or how little, Sapphire Ballroom invites you to join us at a Milonga. The Milonga is the social dance of the Argentine Tango world. When Argentine Tango is danced at Sapphire Dance Parties, it is mixed with many other dance styles and so it doesn't feature the unique social dance party structure of a true Milonga. If this sounds intriguing (and is new information to you), all you need are a few lessons before joining in the fun. If you're already familiar with the Tango culture, join us this month! There will be no lesson at these events, just social dancing and the chance to have fun exploring this amazing dance. Monthly Milongas are be held on the 3rd Friday of the month at 8:30pm (after Sapphire’s Friday Night Beginner Workshop) and last about 2 hours. They are $5 a person. Come see what it’s all about.
   Time: 8:30pm
Location: Sapphire Studio C
Admission: $5

   Time: 4:00 & 5:00 pm
Location: Sapphire Studio C
Admission: $12-17/person

Gobbler’s Gala Dance Party - Saturday, November 10, 2018

The hunt is on, over the river and through the woods, to Sapphire’s homage to the season of eatin’.
Come dance the night away to music inspired by all things food-like. Start the dance with “Banana Pancakes,” stop for a break under the “Mango Tree,” maybe swing by “Margaritaville” and wrap it up with a “Banana Spit for My Baby.” Dress up a little, if you feel inspired, it is a Gala after all... Maybe think Hokie, or Thanksgiving, but let’s not wear our dinner, alright?
No matter what you’re eating, join us to get your holiday season moving in the right direction - “Line-Of-Dance!” The lesson will be in Quickstep, to help you work up an appetite for all that delicious dancing! We will start slow and easy but end up faster than a turkey can trot, even if it’s being chased by a hungry chef.
   Time: 7:30 Lesson; 8:30 Dancing
Location: Sapphire Studio C
Admission: $12 General / $8 Full-Time Students
Volunteer to bring a dish to share!

Peppermint Ball - Saturday, December 08, 2018

Ready for a winter wonderland?
Join us as we get a little "flaky" at our last dance of the year! Remember - he sees you when you’re dancing, he knows when you sit down, he knows if you lead or follow, so you better dance good for goodness sake! What light-hearted, fun-filled dance did we pair with this sweet theme? Single Time Swing - so come out and rock around the disco tree with us!
   Time: 7:30 Lesson; 8:30 Dancing
