Barré-lesque: The Fitness Industries Newest Workout

Barre-lesque Adult Dance Classes in Simi Valley, CA

Barré-lesque is an adult dance fitness class based in the Los Angeles region of Southern California. It combines a ballet barre workout with a burlesque dance style fitness method, to create a 60-minute workout that is not only fun, but cardio effective and body sculpting. Barré-lesque begins with an energizing ballet barre workout, and progresses with burlesque-based choreography that is fun and invigorating. This adult dance class requires no previous dance experience and is offered at different ability levels. Founder Christie Fields explains; "This fitness method does not focus on how fast one can move to amped-up music. It lends focus to authentic movement that is satisfying, fun, and effective. Barré-lesque is for those who simply like to dance.”

Our ballet barre warm-up tones and strengthens every muscle in the body from head to toe! And the burlesque dance center workout and choreography are a blast! This ballet barre workout leaves the body feeling limber, toned and defined. Our low-impact dance workout provides cardiovascular benefits that blast fat and shape the body into a toned, sleek dancer’s body. The best part about this workout is that anyone can do it. Each participant gains actual real-world dance technique knowledge and learns dance moves that are not only fun, but effective!

Christie Field goes on to say; “Over the past twenty years, I have found a collective voice coming from gyms, community colleges, yoga studios, and various trendy workout classes: people like to dance! But many adults feel silly trying to take a traditional dance class in fear it will be either too complicated or too juvenile.Burlesque is more than a striptease: it has roots in jazz dancing and is now embedded in pop culture."

Barré-lesque classes are being offered in Simi Valley, CA and will soon be expanding to additional regions of Southern California.
