Crowe Barre’s signature 60-minute barre class builds strength, increases flexibility, and improves well-being using proper alignment and form.
This high energy 45-minute mat class flows seamlessly from one exercise to the next, with options for low and high impact movements and an emphasis on the gluteals and core. Done entirely on a yoga mat, class will use light and heavy weights and may also utilize Core Balls, gliders, and resistance bands. Sneakers, bare feet, or socks can be worn for class.
Circuits + Core
A 30-minute interval-based combination of cardio, strength and core conditioning designed to safely stretch your limits! Done on a mat with light and/or heavy weights.
Sneakers recommended but not required.
Excellent place! My first ever barre class was challenging and exciting. Denise is an amazing instructor and she motivates you throughout the entire class, always making sure that you’re doing the exercises properly, correcting your posture.
Everyone should try this out, you’ll love it!

Crowe Barre Member Madeline T. talks about how wonderful it is to be back in the studio!
I have been taking classes with Denise and Julie from Crowe Barre for years. It would be hard to find barre instructors with stronger lineage and understanding of the subtleties and movements that make up a barre class. They know how to push their students in a way that is empowering (and safe!). I am always challenged in their classes, and love the community that they have created.
Crowe Barre classes are the best! They challenge, stretch (literally and figuratively!) and tone. My posture, strength and mindset have greatly improved and I have access to expert instructors who make sure that form and alignment are priorities. I highly recommend!
