What You'll Get
Having two left feet makes the art of seduction almost impossible, except when standing next to someone with four right hands. Beguile admirers no matter where you stand with today's Groupon to Uptown Ballroom, valid at both Portland locations for new customers only. Choose between the following options:
- For $16, you get a one-month beginner's swing-dancing package (up to a $49 value).
- For $16, you get a one-month beginner's round-dancing package (up to a $49 value). Students must attend round-dancing classes with a partner.
Each package includes:
- Four one-hour weekly group classes
- Admission to up to three social dances
Uptown Ballroom equips aspiring rug-cutters with professional instruction, delivered by experienced teachers who continually update their skills. Swingers select one of three styles: East Coast, the most popular type of swing, Lindy Hop, an energetic style that became popular in 1930s America, or West Coast, a more elastic style that emphasizes improvisation and fedora twirling. Alternatively, round-dancing choreographs classic ballroom steps for a roomful of couples. An instructor's cues guide pairs to foxtrot, quickstep, and tango in time, spinning with all the elegance and none of the mascots of the spinning teacups at Disneyland.
At three social dances, scheduled up to four times per month on Saturday and Sunday evenings, 40–75 students of all ages and dance backgrounds seize the chance to display their moves, mix with different partners, and conspire to forge a Hustle-Vienna waltz hybrid. Browse the class schedule online to chart a route to newfound rhythm.
