About the course

Barre is a fitness class adapted from the basics of a ballet warm up, incorporating yoga and pilates, and pushing you to find new levels of strength! No matter your fitness experience, barre is an accessible and fun way to lengthen, strengthen, and tone your muscles in a low impact class. In this second class, we will build on the basics of barre and start trying out new exercises, with an extra focus on planks and crunches. It's a great way to set personal goals or just celebrate movement for an hour!

If you’re excited to move your body, challenge your perceived limits, and explore your artistic side, my courses are for you! My classes will focus on the technique, history, and exciting processes of theatre, fitness, and baking. From the basics of physical fitness to the specific tips and tricks of Broadway stars, these courses will provide valuable resources and a fulfilling journey for students at any level.

Tutoring began for me as a volunteer in high school, where I would help fellow students in Math, Spanish, and History on lunch breaks and after school with The National Honor Society. In college, I performed and taught theatre, fitness, and music to students in the suburbs surrounding Northwestern University, providing the community with access to high level arts education and fitness resources. After graduating, I worked professionally as an SAT/ACT Tutor, actress, and Group Fitness Instructor in New York City. I recently led musical theatre master classes across the country with Broadway Connection while performing on a National Tour, inspiring kids to feed their love of theatre and hone their skills as performers.

Students in my courses can expect to take their artistic and physical skills to the next level through an exciting series of classes . We’ll dive deep into the practical mastery of fitness, entertainment, and baking professionals while celebrating your specific growth and interests. My high energy courses will leave you feeling accomplished, proud, and ready to learn more!
