Why Barre?

BarreEvolution is a full body workout. If you have always dreamed of a dancer’s body, this Ballet inspired class can help make that happen.

BarreEvolution works the whole body, lifting bottoms, trimming thighs and defining arms, while increasing flexibility.

BarreEvolution classes promote increased muscle mass and metabolic rate, so you burn calories at rest as well as during the workout.

BarreEvolution will help you:

  • Look and feel more lean, toned, and strong.
  • Speed up your metabolism.
  • Lose inches from your waist and add them to your height just by improving your posture. Achieve stronger, leaner legs.
  • Tone all your muscles without the erratic heartbeat

This class is great for runners, people that do cross fit, and/or lift weights.

BarreEvolution is for everyone. There is no dance or exercise experience required. It’s suitable for any body type or fitness level, young and old.

About Your Instructor

Marci went on to choreograph dance, coach cheerleading and design cheerleading competition routines in our local area. After marrying her husband David and starting a family, Marci knew she had to get back to the one thing that was missing in her life…dance. Three years ago she founded BarreEvolution, a fun and inspiring mosaic of ballet fundamentals, yoga and pilates that encourages core strengthening, body toning and flexibility. Starting in 2017, Marci starting adding Adult dance workshops and dance classes to her business. Marci's philosophy, you are never to old to keep doing what you love! That is why Marci has added Adult Dance Classes to her business.

She is proud to be helping again this coming year!
