Classic Foundation | Modern Technique

Modern Barre classes are full body, low impact workouts inspired by the foundations of ballet, Pilates, and yoga. Classes utilize the ballet barre, light resistance, and body weight exercises to increase total body strength with minimal stress on joints. Each strength exercise is followed by a targeted stretching segment to increase flexibility and lengthen muscles. No dance experience is required and clients of all ages and fitness levels will benefit from this safe, yet challenging workout. Each class is set to upbeat music and ends with a calming cool down to leave you feeling centered and refreshed.

Past | Present

Barre fitness has been adapted over the years from a system created in the 1950s by professional ballet dancer, Lotte Berk. After sustaining a back injury, Berk began rehabilitating her body using a combination of orthopedic stretches and ballet barre exercises, resulting in a unique workout program which is now known as barre fitness. Modern Barre has combined these classic foundations with modern technique to deliver a simple yet effective program with a multitude of benefits.



Essential Modern Barre - 45 Minutes

An introduction to the Modern Barre technique focusing on alignment, core stability, and flexibility. Classes are energized but work at a gentler pace with fewer strength repetitions and increased stretching segments. A great choice if you are new to barre or if you are a regular looking to perfect your form. With clear and simple exercises this class will give you all of the barre essentials.

Signature Modern Barre - 60 Minutes

Signature Express - 45 Minutes

Our signature class offers an intense, low impact, total body workout utilizing the ballet barre, light resistance, and body weight exercises. Each exercise works muscles to fatigue and then stretches them to increase flexibility and create long, lean lines. Sessions end with our calming lavender cool down for total mind-body integration.

Cardio Modern Barre - 60 Minutes

Everything you love about our Signature Modern Barre class, with the addition of an upbeat, aerobic workout. Cardio Modern Barre is the perfect choice for those looking for a dynamic cardio workout with all of the benefits of barre.

Modern Barre Flow - 60 Minutes

This class adapts the Modern Barre technique by concentrating on slower, controlled motions that will get your whole body moving. Each muscle group will be lengthened and strengthened, bringing you that same burn and muscle-shake that you look for in our Signature class.

Modern Barre Sculpt & Stretch - 45 Minutes

This class includes a 30-minute segment of low-impact, but high-intensity, strength exercises that will sculpt and define your muscles. The second 15-minute segment of active stretching will focus on lengthening the muscles and mobilizing the joints. This class is the perfect combination of challenge and relaxation that will leave you feeling strong and long!

Modern Barre Abs & Glutes - 45 Minutes

This class will  serve up 45 minutes of ab and glute burning exercises, focused on strengthening the core and toning the glutes. Each of these muscle groups will be individually targeted and worked to fatigue, before finishing off with a plank series to tie them both together. This class ends with our Signature stretch and cool down.

HIIT The Mat - 45 Minutes

This high intensity, intermediate to advanced class takes us off the barre to the mat and focuses on endurance, balance, and strength-work. You will sweat and sculpt through class and continue to burn calories throughout the rest of the day.

Cardio Arms & Abs - 60 Minutes

Everything you know and love about our Modern Barre Cardio class, combined with a series targeting your upper body. Cardio Arms + Abs will serve up 25 minutes of an upbeat, aerobic workout that will get your heart pumping and keep your energy high. The following 30 minutes will include strength exercises focused on conditioning the core and arms, and finish with our Signature stretch and cool down.
