In 2001 Carrie Rezabek Dorr was alone with a big idea in the basement studio of an office building in Birmingham, Michigan. Her idea for exercise regimes based on barre and dance proved too big for her subterranean space. Within eight years, she was opening national Pure Barre franchises, each built on the foundation of ballet-inspired workouts she designed during her time in the pleasant peninsula.
The workout's low-impact techniques aim to sculpt long, lean musculature, often through strength exercises based in plyometrics. During the one-hour classes, teachers incorporate weights, ballet, and Pilates to create interesting workouts. Each session is designed to transform workaday bodies into ballet-grade physiques and stops just short of turning them into horrifying human-swan hybrids.
