Uptown Ballroom’s instructors introduce elements of dance in private and group classes, and throw regular balls so students can break in their dancing shoes in a sociable setting. During private sessions, which accommodate up to two students, a teacher leads feet through the desired dance’s proper footwork and form. In group classes, students practice the musicality and figures that mark a seasoned rug cutter, with each month’s session culminating in a complete choreographed dance. Those flying solo to classes can rest assured that groups regularly rotate partners to practice lead-follow skills and force novices to break their habits of dancing only with their clones. Frequent social-dance parties challenge students to show off their technique atop boisterous dance floors packed with 40–75 enthusiasts. View a complete class schedule for upcoming group sessions.

I started attending the Saturday morning Zumba classes with Angie using a Groupon deal. Angie is upbeat and friendly, and it's a great, fun workout and not overly difficult. There is a range of ages. I look forward to the class!
