Our fun, professional staff is committed to creating a comfortable atmosphere for learning, while keeping everyone safe.

All lessons require a Zoom log in which we will provide you, but not a Zoom account.  To get more details and the log in information about a particular workshop, please email us at info@sapphiredance.com.

All lessons offer a variety of payment amounts. If you are strapped for funds, for whatever reason, please still dance with us! If you have the means, please consider paying a little extra for your classes, like you would tip a server at your favorite restaurant. It will go towards paying our rent and utilities until we can get back on the dancefloor (hopefully in June!). We love you all and believe you deserve the chance to dance as often as possible.

Saturday Morning Shag Classes

Saturday Morning Shag Classes

  Jewel

Are you dreaming of going to the beach? Want a mini vacation without the fuss of traveling? Join us online at 11:00 am Saturday mornings in June and July (maybe beyond!) for an hour of Carolina Shag. 

This charming dance can be found up and down the coasts of the Carolinas, at summertime festivals, car shows, and anywhere people listen to beach music and yearn to dance in the sand.

Each Saturday morning, your instructor will start with a basic pattern and then add something different to it.  The moves will be selected so that you can practice them on your own or with a partner.  All you need is comfortable shoes, a little space to dance, and a computer, smartphone or tablet. 

Your early registration by email is appreciated, but not required.

Suggested cost: $6/person. Payment is optional, and extremely appreciated, for online classes.
