[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]What is barre class?

Barre class is a combination of ballet, pilates, and yoga. Depending on the facility, the class is held either in a carpeted studio or in a multi-purpose room.

 

Who is barre class for?

Barre class is for all ages and technique levels. The classes tend to be strenuous on the muscles, but low-impact on the joints. Additionally if a move is too intense, the instructor often offers modifications.

 

What should I wear?

Wear comfortable workout attire, and bring socks for traction.

 

What should I bring?

Most gyms and studios will provide all necessary equipment. Equipment may include yoga blocks, light weights, looped resistance bands, and medicine balls. We recommend bringing a yoga mat and a water bottle.

 

What can I expect?

Most barre workouts are typically low impact, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t expect to sweat…a lot. The goal of the class is to sculpt and stretch muscles, to do this most teachers target specific muscle groups through isometric movements and stretches.

 

Should dancers take barre class?

Absolutely dancers should take barre class. It is a great way to stay in shape during off seasons. It is also a great way to regain strength after an injury.
