It's 5:00 Somewhere...Meet Me at the Barre

Ballet Barre

Have you always wanted a dancer's body but don't want to Zumba or Jazzercise your way there? One of the best ways to achieve this while still maintaining your dignity is Purre Barre - a total body workout that utilizes the ballet barre to burn fat, sculpt muscles and create long, lean physiques. 

This low-impact workout can be done by men and women of all shapes and sizes - no dancing experience required. Because there is no hierarchy of skill levels, you're able to choose a class that fits your schedule, rather than being pigeonholed to work out at a specific time based on the level of class. Although the format of classes is the same every time, the choreography and exercises are constantly changing, making each class just as fresh and challenging as the first. Barre is also a great addition to your exercise regimen if you primarily focus on heavy lifting as it will help to improve your core strength, posture and flexibility.
