Barre is a technique inspired fitness class that blends principles of pilates with elements of ballet barre work.
Barre class is designed to be a full-body, muscle endurance workout. Rep after rep of muscle-burning moves will trim, and tone your body like never before. Portions of class address stretching to increase overall flexibility and ease of movement in the body.
No ballet experience required.
The actual barre is a prop used for balance. You can just as effectively use a counter top, or back of a chair or couch. Not every class will use the bar or high surface. Sometimes instructors will take those movements to the mat to do them in a non weightbearing orientation! While you’ll hear ballet terms used there is no requirement to know them. Your instructor will demonstrate every position and movement.
