Moving one’s body to the rhythm of music is a natural human instinct, just like running toward the sound of lightning. Move with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get 20 Zumba classes at Uptown Ballroom (a $160 value). This Groupon is valid at both the southeast and southwest Portland locations.
The spellbinding pulsations of Latin-inspired dance beats send a calorie-burning jolt through bodies over the course of 20 high-energy Zumba classes. Easy-to-follow routines based on international styles set the ballroom floor ablaze as a vibrant dance soundtrack created by Grammy Award–winning producers propels each 50-minute class forward. Uptown Ballroom’s instructors use their immaculate sense of balance to walk a fine line between exercise and unrestrained fun, orchestrating a series of moves designed to increase heart rates for a cardio routine more effective than imitating a hamster on a public park carousel. The southeast studio boasts a four-day schedule of classes, whereas patrons of the southwest studio can shimmy their way into better shape on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10 a.m.
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.
