How can I run one mile faster?

What is the best way to run a single mile faster? Four laps on a track. Right now I can't seem to do it any faster than 8:30. I work out doing an outdoor class that's mixed cardio drills and strength four times a week, and I'm happy with that. I can realistically add only one more workout to my week, and I'd like it to focus on improving my mile time.
I am interested in both training drills and strategies for pacing.
I am not particularly interested in running longer distances as a goal, although I have in the past. If the key to running one fast mile is running five fast miles in training or something, though, I'm interested to hear about that.
