You guys asked for it so we're doing it! Barre workshop with a Polefire metal twist!!
Considering the basic equipment and many moves are based on classic ballet positions, it's no surprise barre was developed by a ballerina.
After injuring her back, Lotte Berk, came up with the idea to combine her dance conditioning routine with her rehabilitative therapy, placing emphasis on form, alignment and core engagement.
While barre has its origins in dance, the rhythmically challenged shouldn't worry. You don't need any dance experience at all to try.
Classes follow the same basic structure: you'll start with a mat based warm-up, a series of arm exercises and continue at the bar (or chair in our case) with a lower body section to work your thighs and glutes, finishing up with a series of core-focused moves that will really fire up your flexibility.
We'll also run through some hand and line positioning, including the "signature" Jen "metal ballet" hand positions for those who never know what to do with their hands and arms when performing!
