What is barre?

Barre is a ballet inspired workout that also includes elements from Pilates. Focusing on strength training the core while practicing graceful extensions, ballet posture and proper body alignment.

This class is perfect for the beginner as well as the experienced dancer. BARRE is a full body strength training, balance and flexibility class that will quickly increase your strength, stamina and flexibility. We utilize multiple repetitions with light weights as well as our own body weight resistance to build muscle.

You are sure to walk away from each class feeling lengthened, strengthened and more graceful than when you came in.

What to wear & bring to class

Wear comfortable, form fitting leggings or shorts and a comfortable form fitting top so that you can be visually aware of proper form and posture.

Please bring a yoga mat and water bottle.
