Basic Barre follows the same format as our popular Just Barre class but uses a slightly slower pace, allowing for a greater emphasis on form and alignment as well as additional modifications if needed. Very few advanced moves are used in this class and choreography remains more consistent. But don't be fooled by the basics label...one class will leave you aching for more! You do not need to take a Basic Barre class as your first class but it is recommended.
