Get lean, toned and strong with Barre-Fit. We teach a combination of ballet, core, stretching and body weight exercises to strengthen and stretch your entire body, focusing on arms, abs, inner and outer thighs and glutes. Instead of a ballet barre or handrail, we use chair backs, tables or countertops to do our barre work. No equipment is necessary; just bring a mat or a thick towel to support floor work. If you have 1-5 lb. hand weights or good substitutes, bring them along.
