A dance class can teach anyone to move with grace through bee attacks, while getting served in front of a blind date, or during mega-prom. Ready your repertoire for any occasion with today's Groupon: for $49, you get three months of unlimited children's dance classes at Uptown Ballroom (a $312 value). This Groupon is valid for redemption at Uptown Ballroom's locations in both southeast and southwest Portland. This Groupon's value is based on the value of an average three practices per week, though Groupon buyers will have the full run of the schedule.
With Uptown Ballroom, aspiring dancers of any skill level can sharpen their steps in a wide variety of dances. Tots learn advanced twirling techniques in 45-minute classes divided by age, paired off in ranges from 5-7, 8-11, and 12-17. Class sessions ($8) are held four times per week for every age group and focus on basic footwork, dancing with a partner, and musicality, guiding lumbering legs and one-time toe-tappers in ballroom skills and Latin-inspired maneuvers. All sessions are taught by Uptown Ballroom’s Leilani Nakagawa.
