Why did you become an instructor at Barre Groove?

I initially heard about Barre Groove from my older sister who has been an instructor for 3 years! I’ve loved fitness and dancing for years, putting the two of those together only seemed natural. From the first time I bounced at the club I knew there was no fitness class quite like this. Thankfully my sister encouraged me to take the next step and become an instructor, and I’m so happy she did!

What is your background in fitness and/or dance?

I did classical ballet for years growing up and have been actively involved in fitness since then!

What motivates you as an instructor?

The amazing vibe in the room at BG! The clients come in and are willing to give it their all, which makes me want to do the same!

What type of music will we hear in your classes?

All the kinds! I love to mix it up but lean towards fun and upbeat pop vibes or hard hitting hip hop, and of course a sprinkle of my girl T Swift.
