Uptown Ballroom | Poster Work

Uptown Ballroom has an exciting announcement to make: They're the feature Portland Groupon today!

In the spirit of getting things spiffed up for all the new dancers inevitably coming to Uptown once they clamber to purchase the Groupon offer ($49 for One Private Class, Two Months of Unlimited Beginners’ Group Classes, and Admission to Social Dances at Uptown Ballroom - $391 Average Value), we created several custom posters promoting dancing - it's beauty, joy and power to change lives.

You might recognize the shots from the Alchemy Dancewear post. (Uptown and Alchemy are sister companies.) And, as stated in that earlier post, if you're a fan of ABC's Dancing With The Stars, you might recognize this model. She's Charlotte Jørgensen, a world renown professional ballroom dancer who starred on Season One, dancing with actor John O'Hurley. They were the runners up, but won the 'rematch' sponsored by ABC. She now spends her time training and coaching. The Uptown Ballroom team frequently dashes down to take lessons from her in Los Angeles.
