Whether you’re looking for a dance routine that eliminates the need of a fixed barre or you just want to add variety to your training, Barre á Terre (Barre on the Floor) is an excellent choice. This French founded method fuses the elements of Pilates, yoga, strength training, and ballet moves to give you a complete workout from the floor.
Our Barre á Terre (Barre on the Floor) class will assist you in correcting your posture, relieving stress on your joints, increase your flexibility, and strengthen your core. Do not be fooled, though, since the isometric exercises that are used while on the floor target your muscles by tightening them using equal forces against each other. Partly assisted by gravity and helping you find symmetry in movement, you are still getting a powerful combination of dance and resistance training that will lead you straight to your fitness goals and keep you dancing!
