Barreworks is an exercise Studio completely dedicated to barre and ballet-based workouts. We offer a full schedule of barre, ballet and barre/fusion classes, 7 days a week.
With origins in Lotte Berk and New York City Ballet Methods, our unique classes give you a low impact but high intensity full body workout and fast results towards achieving the physique of a dancer.
You do not need any previous dance or general exercise experience and all classes are entirely suitable for beginners. Classes are suitable for anyone over the age of 16. Fitness and shape are not important.
With regular attendance, you will build long, lean muscle and achieve the perfect posture of a dancer’s body. With no jumping around and no wildly beating heart — and no need to shower after the class — this is highly efficient exercise that can be done anywhere, anytime.
