Senior Social & Dance Party - Sunday, September 15, 2019

Indulge in yummy snacks, meet interesting new friends, and then (if you want) try dancing during the beginner-friendly lesson all to fantastic music from the 40s, 50s, & 60s. Co-hosted by the Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) at Virginia Tech and Sapphire Ballroom, this dance party is a perfect example of the many fun ways that you can continue to grow and learn your entire life. You do not not need to be a member of LLI or a student at Sapphire to come enjoy yourself for an afternoon and learn something new in the process. While this event is geared towards 55+, no one will be checking IDs at the door. If you’re able, please RSVP to Sapphire Ballroom at 540-382-8782 or Singles and walk-ins are welcome.

Location: Sapphire Studio C
Admission: $8/person

Dress up or not, this jungle-funky dance is sure to get you in the swing of things. Come out to get a little instruction in Fox Trot (what else?) - friendly as a bunny to start and ready to roar by the end.

Vinyl Vibe Dance Party - Saturday, November 09, 2019

Once upon a time, some of the best music ever was produced on records (aka Vinyl). Tonight we journey back to visit those hits from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. Yes, we could have gone back further, but we only have one night! So dig out your retro best, be they Mary Janes, hip huggers, Minis, or leg warmers and join us for a totally far out lesson in West Coast Swing.
