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.
