The class begins with a Vinyasa Flow inspired sequence designed to warm up your entire body, prepare you for the work to follow and to develop your upper body strength at the same time as moving fluidly through the sequence. This is followed by half an hour of classical barre exercises designed to work the glutes, quads and calves, 15 minutes of Floor Barre engaging the core and reinforcing the correct technique, alignment and placement whilst isolating the correct muscle groups to perform an action or movement,  we finish with a short section of Centre Barre to get you moving through the space before ending with the Black's Barre Reverance.

Floor Barre

Floor-Barre consists of exercises based on Ballet steps performed lying and sitting on the floor. It's an ideal way to prepare and maintain the body, strengthen, lengthen and tone, whilst increasing your flexibility. Our class is suitable for all levels from beginners to professional dancers and is a great way of returning to exercise after an injury or time off.  

In this class you will improve your Ballet technique by working isolated parts of the body without tensing, as you might when standing, resulting in a safe and very effective workout. It is especially beneficial for Beginners.
