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.
