BarreFitness is a ballet-inspired workout designed to lengthen and tone the entire body with particular attention to the thighs, arms, buttocks and stomach. The class uses an actual ballet barre to perform rigorous strengthening exercises as well as stretches for the lower body.
There is also a floor segment of the class which incorporates Pilates-inspired core exercises with and without the barre as well as upper body work. Unlike a traditional ballet class, this workout is done to popular music and the movements are small but intense with many repetitions. BarreFitness is ideal for people of all levels who want to improve their overall fitness and achieve the coveted long, lean muscles of a dancer as well as a strong core.
