What is Barre Body®?

Barre Body® is a workout created by dancers for everyone!  This invigorating workout targets the upper body, abdominals, seat and thighs.  In a ballet-inspired class set to a mix of upbeat music, students use a variety of props to promote the development of long, lean muscles like those associated with the dancer’s body—giving them that “barre body” look.

What are the benefits of Barre Body®?

  • shapes and tones muscles without the added bulk
  •  increases cardiovascular fitness and stamina
  • challenges coordination and balance while enhancing posture
  • creates longer, leaner and more flexible muscles
  • heightens body awareness and inspires a mind-body connection
  • is offered in an efficient 45-50 minute full body workout
  • serves as a great stress reliever
  • AND it’s fun!!!
