As its name implies, Modern Barre offers a contemporary take on the rejuvenating workout regimen originally designed by a professional ballet dancer in the 1950s. This refined approach still uses the dance-inspired orthopedic stretches and ballet barre-assisted exercises, but Modern Barre's instructors introduce elements of Pilates and yoga to create a balanced, full-body workout that lengthens and strengthens muscles without placing undue stress on joints. Though each of the studio's teachers possesses classical dance training, students can perform the gentle body-weight and light resistance exercises, even if they don't have previous dance experience or even own a nutcracker. For a slightly different approach, the instructors also lead HIIT classes as well as cardio-based barre sessions, which introduce more aerobic activity into the standard workout regimen.

“Great studio with great instructors. Julia is the owner and is very personable and provides individual attention if needed. The studio is cozy and the classes are typically not much bigger than 10 students (it can get a little crowded but you still have personal space). ”
“Parking can be a little difficult, but the classes are excellent. Julia is an excellent instructor.”
