Q:   I am not at dancer. Can I still practice Barre work?

A:                Yes! You are a perfect candidate for Barre work. Many people think that they need to be a dancer or at least somewhat flexible to begin Barre practice, but that's a little bit like thinking that you need to be able to play tennis in order to take tennis lessons. Come as you are and you will find that Barre practice will help you become more flexible. This newly found agility will be balanced by strength, coordination, and enhanced cardiovascular health, as well as a sense of physical confidence and overall well-being.

Q:   What should I expect at my first class?

A:           Classes are fun, energetic, fast-paced and last about an hour. Each class starts with a warmup then a focus on each area of the body with movements and stretching. If you’re new to Barre, come to class with an open mind because the concept is so different and innovative. Expect to feel a serious burn and see results within your first 10 classes! Most studios recommend three to five classes per week for best results.

Q:   How many times per week should I practice yoga?

A:           Barre work is amazing—even if you only practice for one hour a week, you will experience the benefits of the practice. If you can do more than that, you will certainly experience more benefits. We suggest starting with two or three times a week for an hour. Don't let time constraints or unrealistic goals be an obstacle—do what you can and don't worry about it. You will likely find that after awhile your desire to practice expands naturally and you will find yourself doing more and more.

Q:   What should I wear?

A:           Wear clothing you feel comfortable moving in like yoga pants and athletic tops. Wear pants that cover to at least your knees. Try not to wear extra baggy clothing. It’s important for instructors to see your body alignment.
