Effervescence and community at Barre & Bubbles. No experience needed, just the desire to move before enjoying some effervescence! Bring a friend or make 29 new ones at a joyful total body barre class around Solo Italiano's open, light-filled bar between iconic views of Commercial Street and Portland's working waterfront. Following your class, Crush and Easterly distributors will pour a rewarding flight of Ortrugo Vivace, Prosecco Superiore, Franciacorta and Nebbiolo Brut. Chef Paolo and Mercedes will match each pour with an appropriate noontime nibble to further the ride your endorphins will be on!

Inspired by classical ballet, Pilates, yoga and functional movement, Barre enhances your mind-body connection, refines your movement quality and builds strength, balance and grace from the inside out. Open to all movers--no dance or barre class experience necessary. BYO yoga mat and a pair of regular (not grippy) socks.
