Group Lessons and Events

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.

Exercises to Improve Balance

Technique What's Next Workshop

This exercise class is specifically geared towards improving your balance while dancing.

You will sweat; you may be sore; you will probably complain (we all do); but we keep coming back for more.

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
