Watch our master Barre classes instructor Elizabeth explaining why our exclusive “Absolut Barre” is the best you can get.
The ballet-inspired barre classes out there are all designed for one purpose: to help you achieve a slim, strong, sculpted dancer’s body.
The celeb fan base is huge: Sofia Vergara, Drew Barrymore, Madonna, Anna Paquin, Kelly Ripa…to name a few.
Just about any Barre class will have you working at least part of the time at, well, the barre.
You’ll do a lot of reps of small, pulsing movements (we’re talking lifting and lowering limbs a mere inch or two), targeting the muscles in your core, lower body and your top half. They offer a big emphasis on form and alignment and sometimes throw in a bevy of other props, too, like yoga straps, exercise balls and hand weights. In any case, you will hurt after the first few classes, but you’ll also probably see some pretty major results in short order.
We offer variety, no two Barre classes are the same, and our Barre Instructors are encouraged to have their own style, the barre exercises from one class to the other.
That way, muscles do not get used to always doing the same movements, and you achieve great results in a short time.
We mix yoga as well as dance, so there’s a real focus on breathing and the mind-body connection — making it a holistic workout. But you’re still going to sweat, thanks mostly to the plyometrics and killer core sequence.
The goal is to “strengthen, then lengthen,” the muscles, so you won’t bulk up. Each class has you working muscles in ways that won’t tax your joints, with very hands-on instructors. Bottom line, you will get great results and you will feel your abs, butt, and thighs while getting some serious body sculpting.
