Let me take you dancing...


No, I'm not talking about the type of dancing Jason Derulo is espousing.

I'm talking Ballroom, Latin, Swing, Country, and more.  If you're looking for fun, relaxed, totally fabulous social activity for your next date night, look at our Date Night Dance Classes (DNDC) at Blacksburg Community Center.  Each class is 2 hours of fun: learning and practicing a new skill you can use over and over again. That beats getting another souvenir glass you don't have space for. 

If you've dance before, with us or somewhere else, DNDCs are a great way to get started on a new dance style or brush up on one you haven't done a while.  If you're brand new to the dance floor, these classes will welcome you with open arms and fun music.  Either way, It a great way to spend an evening with your sweetheart.

Sound like fun? Sign up today! Please register by Saturday noon by online at or by emailing us and paying at the event - just reply to this email with your name and the names of anyone you plan to bring.

Schedule Highlights



We are halfway done with Septmber! That means beautiful trees, mums and pumpkins everywhere, and lots of rain. Might be time to find some fun, indoor activities. Yeah, we've got a few options.

As you might guess, we're gearing up with a whole much of new offerings for your dance adventure as we head into colder climes, as well saying farewell to a few warm-weather events. Keep an eye on or our Facebook page for more details about all the stuff we have in store for the next few months.

In the meantime, here's what's on tap for the next few weeks. You'll notice that our more advanced offerings - the What's Next Workshops - are kind of sparce. I'm still working on filling that schedule through October - feel free to make requests!

While the party playlist will focus on class material, it will also include all those other styles you’ve heard about and love: Waltz, Tango, West Coast Swing, Hustle, Cha Cha, Rumba, and more.

Sapphire's group classes and workshops are always small, low stress, and fun. They are a great way to meet other people who have also decided to learn to dance, as well as get to know our teaching staff. It doesn't take any long-term investment to get started, no special clothing or shoes - just something comfortable to wear and a sense of adventure. So, take the plunge and try it out.

All classes (in person or online) require registration by noon the day the class starts. We are happy to add late-comers if we can, but classes may be cancelled or rescheduled if registration is low.

Five ways to register, just choose one and we'll take care of the rest:
1 - reply to this email;
2 - register and pay at the same time at our online store at;
3 - talk to your favorite Sapphire Staff member;
4 - give us a ring at 540-382-8782;
5 - Blacksburg Group classes are best registered through the Blacksburg Community Center webpage.

Thanks for reading; we hope you found something you liked. Until we see you again, happy dancing!
