Women in search of a dancer's body are lining up for the ballet barre.

Barre is a low impact class that will push your muscles to their limit. The class combines elements of ballet, Pilates and Yoga. The exercises rely mainly on one's own body weight for resistance and the moves challenge your core stability and balance. Barre workouts are designed to help build a strong, sleek and streamlined body.
A typical class will be 55 minutes, including a 5-10 minute warm up to rev up your circulation, a 10-15 minute sement with light weights (2-5 pounds) to tone upper body. Next is 20-30 minutes at the ballet barre to sculpt and lengthen feet, legs, glutes and hips. The class finishes up with 10 minutes of floor work, including abdominals and stretching.
