Classes Move To Dance With Joy March 2nd!

Fluid’s classes have a new home starting next week! Starting March 2nd, we meet at Dance With Joy Studios: 8051 SE 16th Avenue, Portland, OR 97202

Our evening classes (Yoga, Pilates, Energy Flow) all start at 6:30. Saturday Barre is at 9 am. Teen yoga Thursday 4:30.

I’m super excited for you all to check out this beautiful space. I have known the owner, Rachel, for years, and have tried a variety of dance styles via their lessons and parties. Every instructor is positive, warm, and welcoming. I’ve danced with partners in their 80’s as well as teenagers. Eric and I were taking a foxtrot lesson here last summer and one of the regulars slid over to him and whispered “hey man, nobody is even looking at you, they are watching the instructor and trying to figure out their own footwork”. It was really sweet and immediately put him at ease. In fact, Eric was the one to suggest we move our classes here.

We are going to experience the same warm welcome when we set up shop here next week!


The space is large, clean, bright, and comfortable, with nice wood floors. There are several couches (Bridget I’m looking at you), and a lounge area in the back where you can hang out before or after class. The studio is already set up with all our gear (yoga blocks, mats n such), and I will be bringing some of my stuff over as well, like the foam rollers, BOSU’s, and magic circles – sorry Kathleen 🙂 You are also welcome to bring your own mat or other gear if you prefer.

This is a hop, skip, and a jump from our current digs. Just head south about 6 blocks. The cross streets are 16th and Spokane. Look for the bright blue (teal) double doors. Come on in, head downstairs, and we will be waiting for you! I will be keeping my phone on me for the first few weeks in case there is any confusion about where to go. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to call me. (503) 705-4762


My hope is that you will pre-register for classes. You will have the ability to pre pay with a credit card, or bring cash or check to class with you. If you are unable to do this before next week, come on down a few minutes early and we can go through your paperwork together.

Thanks again for your patience and flexibility as we transition to a new space!
