Barre classes are for everyone. You don’t require any special dance or Pilates experience. Like anything, with more experience you will improve and some of the moves will come more naturally. A good instructor will also lead you to harder variations. When you the studio you will find a large open room with fixed barres running down one or more walls, with mirrors. Each person in the class will have their place on the barre and will stay more or less in the same spot. You should ensure a good arm’s length distance from other participants. We have a maximum of 16 people. Within a Barre class and in addition to the barre itself there may be some extra equipment. With the Barre Attack method you will typically see elastic draped over the barre, a Pilates ball, small hand weights and a mat. Depending on the class you could use all of these, or none. Throughout the class the instructor should be visible and may lead by example or walk around and demonstrate from different positions. If this is your first barre class it’s a good idea to let the instructor know so they can help you with technique if necessary. You should also let them know if you have any health issues, injuries or if you’re pregnant. Classes range from 50m to 60m and are held to fun upbeat music. Classes will start with a warmup and then include a mix of barre, cardio and stretch sections that could include using the barre, elastic, ball, weights or mat.
