Barre Fitness combines traditional fitness moves and the sculpting benefits of ballet with upbeat music that will make you want to DANCE! It's largely a low impact workout with just the occasional jump that can be modified if that's not suitable for you. Designed to strengthen and stretch the whole body, this class will improve your core strength, flexibility and balance.
It's so much fun you won't even realise you're working out! You don't need any previous dance experience or fancy dance shoes to participate, just some comfortable clothing and socks are all you need to get started.

"I wish I'd started sooner. I love having ballet as the basis for a fitness class. It's quite tough but Sam is a great teacher and there's plenty to smile about even when you're shattered."
"Sam's Barre class is awesome. It's hard work but Sam also makes it fun. I'm noticeably stronger and more toned since I've been doing it. It's a highlight of my week when I can prance around and feel a bit like a swan for an hour!"
Booking is essential as numbers are limited. Click here to book your session.
Face-to-face classes run as block bookings of 6 weeks and cost £6 per class. If you'd prefer not to block book then you can attend on a pay-as-you-go basis for £8 per session if there are spaces. If you need to cancel, you must give 24 hours notice or you will still be charged.
There is a short floor section at the end of the class so please bring an exercise mat or a towel that you can lie on during this part of the session. It doesn’t matter what you wear. Most people tend to wear leggings or jogging bottoms and a t-shirt or vest top, but please come however you feel comfortable. In terms of footwear, it's totally up to you what you want to wear. Socks are quite nice as they allow you to draw your foot along the floor easier, some people prefer to wear dance trainers, ballet shoes or jazz shoes, but it's completely up to you. Trainers aren't the best as they don't allow you to point your toes very easily, but if that's how you're comfortable then go for it!
