Upbeat latin tunes galvanize bodies into motion as instructors guide pupils through a regimen of rhythmic, heart-racing exercises
At Uptown Ballroom, expert instructors trot out their experience competing at the amateur and professional level to lead students toward dancing acumen. Classes set the ballroom floor ablaze as twinkle-toed senseis cover a variety of styles including the waltz, foxtrot, cha-cha, salsa, and west coast swing. Instructors work on each student’s individual strengths or weaknesses during private lessons, restoring two left feet with two deft feet in time for social-dance parties where guests can mingle and try out their new moves. The studio also holds Zumba classes designed to increase heart rates for a cardio routine more effective than imitating a hamster on a public-park carousel.
