You don’t need ballet slippers or a tutu for this class! Yes, it is inspired by Ballet, Pilates, and Yoga but you don’t need any type of dance background to attend! I love teaching this class and I have never taken a dance class in my life. My only dance experience is kicking my shoes off at a wedding 🙂
No experience necessary!

With upbeat and fun music, Barre blends strength training, flexibility, cardio, and core conditioning. We may use light weights, resistance bands, gliding discs, and small balls for this low-impact workout! If you are doing it properly, your abs are always engaged, so you get the benefits of working your core in every single move! It can be a tough core workout!  Barre also targets the thighs and glutes, the largest muscles of our body. This results in a huge calorie burn, builds lean muscle and can increase that metabolic rate!

Barre is perfect for all levels and not just for women!  All of you men out there this class is not for the faint of heart. Take the challenge! The men that venture into class always come back for more. See times below!
Monday 9am, Tuesday 5:45am, Wednesday 4:30pm, Thursday 12:35pm, Friday 9am, and Saturday 8:30am.
