Why The Barre Studio? Using ballet basics and small, isometric movements, we use the barre & props to work muscles to fatigue, then stretch to lengthen. With committed practice, barre work results in elongated, lean muscle. Our boutique studio holds 14 and we pride ourselves on an unparalleled attention to detail, from when you walk in the door through to final stretching. We also pride ourselves on a strong, wonderful community of women.
What to expect? Classes are an efficient 45 minutes in length, no dance experience is required. Classes are open to all ages & sizes and movements are very low impact - tough on the muscles, easy on the joints.
First class? The studio opens 15 minutes prior to class time, please arrive 10 minutes early to complete a waiver and get a quick introduction. Wear workout clothing that is comfortable to move in. You may go bare foot or wear socks - grip socks are best for barre (available for sale in the studio). Bring water!
