Whether you’re already taking lessons with us, or you’re still convinced that you have two left feet, our Group Classes will help you get out and dancing in the real world. We focus on showing you practical, survival dance skills, palatable for the total beginner and fun for all level dancers.

Dances that we learn are specifically geared for getting you coordinated and exposed to what’s out there.  Dances include everything from Salsa, Cha-Cha, Tango, Waltz, Swing, Hustle, Country and more! Every Thursday at 6:30 pm we teach you moves can be used in today’s current “social dance” scene. Like our Facebook page to get your first class free (local ID required)!

Learn basic survival skills that will be more than just a one time thing. We will be dipping our toes in a variety of moves to get the body moving and feeling more natural on the dance floor.

Jump-start your dancing journey, Get set up with go-to moves, and Get out dancing in the Real World! We have dance lessons weekly with fun peeps (Singles, Couples, Beginners especially welcome!), with one common goal: to survive on the Dance Floor, Look Amazing, and Gain enough confidence to actually go out dancing (with friends or strangers)!

Sophia in Sapphire is a one-stop shop: We have group classes to get you set up with go-to moves AND we take you out dancing in the Real World to use them! We esteem a tried and true teaching method by breaking down the basics, and making dance accessible for anyone. We have group classes and parties. However, implementing a small package of Private Dance Lessons is not a bad way to give justice to your dancing. Ask about our Insider perks and discounts after the class.

Learn how to twirl, dip, even how to ask someone to dance! Each month we will be learning a specific dance to USE and moves to IMPLEMENT on our “Dance Field Trips” with Dine Dance & Date™ Outings. Classes are hosted by Sophia in Sapphire’s award winning staff, who will help assimilate you into Real-Life, Social-Dance situations. Remember the Value of these Classes, as they are tailored for learning dances that are applicable to the current, social dance scene in Las Vegas.

Sophia is a terrific instructor. She is able to break down the dance steps and make it relatively easy to learn the basic steps and then build a routine. The group classes are a lot of fun and by the end of the 45 minute group class we have learned the basics of a dance (different dance each week). We have tried other group classes and invariably the instructors would move extremely fast past the basic steps and try to cram so much stuff into the lesson that ultimately the lesson was just frustrating. Sophia is also great with individual lessons, is exceptional about instilling confidence and is really patient. I highly recommend Sophia and hope to see more people at her classes!

I had a girlfriend who left me because I didn’t know how to dance. I considered taking dance lessons but, going to a teacher that only expected me to just follow his steps didn’t really help me in any way. So, I decided to forget about it. And for years, I did. Until, out of the blue, a friend invited me to Sophia’s dance classes. I didn’t really want to go and at first I was nervous and didn’t know what to expect. WOW!! I am grateful that I gave my self the opportunity to come to Sophia’s class. Sophia has that special touch for teaching. She has the skill to breakdown and explain each step and it doesn’t matter if you’ve never danced before. I couldn’t believe how fun it was!!! Sophia’s personality will make you feel welcome and the good energy is contagious. All other members I met also made me feel comfortable and were more than willing to help. If you’re thinking about joining, then come prepared to have a lot of FUN.
