If you haven’t been to a barre class, you’re in for a treat. Many barre instructors  describes it as a combination workout. You’ll get to experience the fun, great music, the balance and strength of pilates and yoga, and the small, detailed movements of ballet.

Barre is a toning, body-weight-lifting workout !

It engages muscles you wouldn’t normally target—ones deep inside your body that squats, lunges and sit-ups don’t reach. With high-reps and low-impact movements, barre challenges anyone looking to fine-tune their muscles—no ballet experience required.

About the Barre

the barre gives you confidence as you’re learning to hold ballet poses, students do use the barre for stability, but they also let go to work on balance.

The barre is only one of the tools that you may use in a barre group exercise class—not all  you may have to use, small and large exercise balls, and even hand weights in our classes.

It’s a full-body workout. We challenge your entire body. We work on your lower body with the barre, but we’ll also be toning our arms and strengthening our core.


We do planks, push-ups, bicep curls and balance exercises. Your body will be working more efficiently to build core strength.

Barre myths

Participants improve their balance and strength in each class they attend, with success measured only against their own abilities.

Some members think that they’re not strong enough to take barre class, but we’re all here to get better and to get stronger. There are options for everyone!

Barre for all ages

Students of all ages are welcome in our barre class, but, practicing barre is the  especially helpful for active older adults, new moms and office workers. We decrease the chance of falling by establishing and strengthening our balance skills. Sitting at a computer all day messes with our balance—so we’re challenging and improving that ability on and off the barre.

Barre’s benefits also can improve conditions like plantar fasciitis and scoliosis just to name a few— Tight calf muscles can contribute to pain in your feet, the importance of strengthening your calves is key. With  scoliosis, we can see back pain contributing to other issues in the  body. That’s why we focus on building these muscles and improving our posture—so that we can be healthier! Barre is also great for your pelvic floor health and can help you to feel better and move better !
