Evening Group Partner Dance Classes

Group classes are a great way to learn to dance, stay active and meet new friends, all at the same time! For our progressive series, please note it is best to start at the beginning of the month as the class material builds throughout the month.

During Phase 1 of the reopening process, we will only be offering events that will allow us to continue social distancing and keeping everyone safe. Your health and safety is our top priority and we will continue to employ the safety protocols recommended by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) throughout the reopening process.

Everyone must wear a face covering upon entering Uptown property beginning while lining up outside for check-in. Face coverings also must be worn in the lobby, lounges, and restrooms. Everyone must leave their face coverings on in common areas during transitions before or after class.

PLEASE NOTE: We are committed to safe social distancing in the studio and will be limiting the number of students in all classes, so pre-registration is REQUIRED for all classes.

The calendar on our registration page is clickable, so simply click on the class you are interested in and you will be able to view all of it’s details as well as pre-register to save your spot.

Levels: Newcomer, Beginning or Bronze classes are designed for those who are either brand new to dancing or those who are wanting to work on their technique in their basics. Beyond Beginning classes are designed for those who already have a solid foundation in the dance style and are looking to increase their skill and repertoire. Intermediate & Advanced classes are designed for those who have mastered both the basics and beyond basic concepts and desire to be challenged in more complex ways.

Prices: Pricing varies, depending on the class. Please see each class’s details on our registration page.

Daytime Dance Program

We dance all times of the day! Daytime Dance Classes are great for learning fun & easy social dance styles. Classes are in a progressive series format so while drop-in’s are allowed, for the best experience please start at the beginning of the month. Classes are taught by instructor Joy Davina. Basic & All Level classes are designed for both those who are brand new to dance and those who have a little experience. Beyond Beginning classes are designed for dancers who know the basics of the style and are ready to expand their knowledge.

During Phase 1 of the reopening, all daytime dance classes will be held in a solo movement format and will be for all levels. The focus will be on exercise and enjoyment of movement common for each genre.
