Burlesque Barre is the steamy-girlie version of a Barre class – a fitness format that has risen to cult-like popularity in cities like New York and London.
Since this course was launched in The Crescent 2-years ago and it has developed quite a reputation! Inside the sinfully playful atmosphere of the Barre classroom is a know-no-boundaries exercise class that steals techniques from ballet, jazz, Pilates, hip hop to disco.
At its core, it is devoted to Barre, which is known for giving non-dancers a dancer’s body and a full on Spanx-like effect!
Bring your attitude and a yoga mat.
Ladies and Men-in-heels welcome.
