Performance Barre is a culmination of over 30 years of dance experience. It is a class designed to take the best ballet barre exercises and make them accessible so everyone has the possibility of training like a ballet dancer. This class will use Pilates, Yoga, ballet floor barre, and sports visualization techniques to improve the body’s physical and mental capacity. Emphasis is placed not only on a workout, but grace, posture and musicality. Use this class to deepen your knowledge of your own body, to explore dance technique, to come back from an injury, or just to become more physically and mentally fit. No prior dance experience is necessary.
