About Power Barre
Barre was created in 1959 by a ballet dancer named Lotte Berk after injuring her back. Berk combined ballet movements with rehabilitative therapy to form a few methods of exercise. Power barre is positioned on the center floor. Also known as “off the barre”. This class includes high + low impact traditional barre combos using medium and light weights along with other props that change weekly. This class is centered around traditional ballet, dance, yoga and pilates foundations. This is an all-levels class. Arrive early to save your seat at the mat.
