Our barre classes are designed to effectively strengthen, tone, and balance the entire body. These workouts integrate the use of the ballet barre, light weights and various props. Students will focus on form and precision while performing small isometric movements as instructors emphasize basic alignment, foundation, and specific muscle actions. Each class includes several highly effective sequences of toning and resistance exercises with an emphasis on the core, arms, seat and thighs. Each strength section of this workout is followed by a stretching section to create long, lean muscle without bulk. These are challenging, no impact classes that require focus and precision for maximum results.
 
Members age 17 and up may attend any of the CG Barre classes on the schedule, but are encouraged arrive early to secure a spot in class. Participation is limited to the first 30 individuals for each class time slot.
