Join the full-body workout party with Danielle!  Barre fitness is a hybrid workout class.  The class begins with a cardio-dance workout to get your heart rate going.  Then, combining ballet-inspired moves with elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and strength training, we tone at the barre from the ground up. The toning focuses on high reps of small movements to work on muscular endurance along with building strength.  The class ends with some floor work including abs, arms and deep stretching and a great feeling of satisfaction for a workout well-done.
