Group 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. Our specialty workshops are designed for those interested in diving deeper into a particular style, technique or skill.

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).

Everyone is required to wear a face covering at all times while at Uptown. Only exception allowed is for eating or drinking as long social distance is maintained.

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.

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 below or on our registration page.
