The same great class you’ve been loving, we just made it better by

Simple athletic cardio, this ain’t no dance class! Plus straightforward weight

longer flexibility segment to improve joint health and mobility.

Monday & Wednesday 4:25 pm-5:25 pm & Thursday 3:10 pm-3:55 pm
A fun, energetic workout that fuses techniques from Dance, Pilates, and Yoga
that will tone, define and chisel the whole body. Bootybarre is the perfect
combination of strength and flexibility with an added cardiovascular
element using the Ballet Barre.

40 minutes of hardcore cardio, 20 minutes of core and stretching…1 hour and DONE!

Barre 2
