Special STAR WARS Themed
Monster Bash Dance Party - October 14, 2017

Let your inner ghoul out to party!
Consider this a warm up for your Halloween festivities. Dress up or not, let your character shine through at this spooky themed dance that’s sure to get you in the “spirit”. We’ll be rocking the Monster Mash with a lesson in Polka.
Sapphire Ballroom is honored to be dedicating this evening to the memory of Ryan Hubbard, who recently died unexpectedly from a heart-related condition. Anyone that had a chance to interact with him knows what joy and enthusiasm he brought to our studio as a student and a member of our staff. We want to continue in that joyful spirit at the Monster Bash Dance Party, combining two of his loves: dance and dressing up in costume! Even better if it is in Star Wars garb.
So, if you don't know what to be for Halloween this year, we will make it easy for you...make it Star Wars! Of course, if you'd rather not dress up, or have other plans for your Halloween attire, you are definitely still welcome. As Chirrut Imwe (Rogue One) would say, "We are all one with the Force."
We will be donating the profits from this dance to the Christiansburg Rescue Squad, another one of Ryan's passions.
