Visit our Square Store to pay online (and register at the same time) for classes and private lessons.

The lesson listing is updated about once a month, unless something unexpected happens. If you see less than a week's worth of several types of events, an update should be on its way.
Our typical schedule includes Friday Beginner Workshops, Line Dancing on 1st and 3rd Tuesdays, What's Next Classes and Workshops (not for beginners) on Mondays, and (seasonally) 4-Hour Group Classes in Blacksburg on week nights.

Slow dancing, except more fun

Nightclub 2-Step Friday Beginner Workshop
Friday, May 31, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Looking for a better slow dance? Want to add some romantic flair to those slow songs? Nightclub 2-Step is here to sweep you off your feet.
Missed last week? No problem. Each week we teach a 40-50 minute, "starting with the basics" lesson in a fun, popular dance style. And then, finish off the hour with a little taste of the style that will be on the schedule the later in the season.
It makes an awesome #DateNight, #ParentsNightOut, or just an evening of #FunWithFriends.

Location: Sapphire Studio (downtown Christiansburg) and online
Price: $9/person in-studio (online options available - contact us for details).
    Pay online and register at the same time at Sapphire's Square Store.
    Registration by noon the day of the event required. We will accommodate late registrations when we can.
Prerequisite: None - this is just for beginners! What a great way to start dancing.

Next Level Line Dance
We're looking for the next Shivers

Line Dance Workshop
Monday, June 3, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

So you've danced around the walls a time or two and you're ready for more? Awesome. We'd love to have you! The dances taught on Monday nights tend to have a larger variety of figures, rhythms, and more complicated transitions than beginner line dances (taught on Tuesdays), so be prepared to battle wall-nesia and get your feet tangled on the path to ALD success. But the result will be worth it, without doubt.

Location: Sapphire Studio
Price: $14/person in-studio.
    Pay online and register at the same time at Sapphire's Square Store.
    Registration by noon the day of the event required. We will accommodate late registrations when we can.
Prerequisite: Dancers participating in these ALD workshops should be comfortable dancing common Line Dance figures including vines, turns, triple steps, and more, prepared to dance fast, and be challenged.

Exercises to Improve Balance

Technique What's Next Workshop
Monday, June 3, 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This exercise class is specifically geared towards improving your balance while dancing. Of course, that also means improving your balance while standing and walking, which really can't be a bad thing. You will sweat; you may be sore; you will probably complain (we all do); but we keep coming back for more.

Location: Sapphire Studio (downtown Christiansburg) and online
Price: $14/person in-studio or $9/person online.
    Pay online and register at the same time at Sapphire's Square Store.
    Registration by noon the day of the event required. We will accommodate late registrations when we can.
Prerequisite: No prerequisites in dance ability or fitness level - you just need to be willing to put the work into improving yourself as a dancer.

Location: Sapphire Studio
