Outdoor Dance Party and Swing Lesson
This Sunday! Save your spot today.

Summer Road Trip

Swing by Nesselrod on the New for Sapphire's October Outdoor Dance Party this Sunday, October 8. The weather looks cool and clear - perfect for some groovy swing and a bit of bouncy Polka!

We will have 2 different (but related) beginner friendly lessons 4:00-5:30pm. Then we'll swing into gear for a dance party heavy in those featured styles, but also including lots of other dance music so you can groove the afternoon away. We've got a fantastic new, very friendly line dance to Stand By Me just taught on Tuesday night that will surely be a part of the playlist and if you don't want to line dance, ask someone how to Bachata!

This is the last Nesselrod dance party this year, so don't miss out!

Sound like fun? Sign up today! Please register by Saturday night 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.

Want to help make these events a success? Bring your friends, bring a snack to share, share the Facebook event, like our Instagram posts. It all helps!

Remember, you can keep up with our news on Facebook at SapphireBallroom and Instagram at SapphireBallroom.

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!
