Barre Balance

An intermediate level, all-standing class for the more advanced participant. Class will work on balance using ballet techniques. No ballet experience required. Inspired by ballet dancers’ moves like the plié (when you bend your knees and straighten them again, with the feet turned out) and relevé (when you raise your feet and legs on the tips of your toes), Barre is a toning, body-weight 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.
