All About Barre
Barre was created by Lotte Berk in London back in 1959 as a way to stay fit while she rehabilitated a back injury. Berk had the idea to combine her ballet barre routines with her rehabilitative therapy, and the result was what we now know as the Barre workout.
Barre is set apart from other low-impact exercises such as Pilates or Yoga because of its use of the ballet barre. In a Barre class, you’ll also use resistance bands, yoga straps, exercise balls, and hand weights while you hold positions and contract specific sets of muscles in isometric exercise. In Barre, the repetitions are high and the range of motion is small, and when weights are used, they are very light, only 2 – 3 pounds.
Dance Into Fitness With Zumba
Zumba was created in 1998 by Alberto Perez in Cali, Colombia. It is a total-body cardio and aerobic workout, which is known for being one of the most fun ways to exercise. Zumba started as just dancing, but over the years the franchise has added more than 10 variations on the program to cater to kids and older generations alike.
Dance Elite offers traditional Zumba, Zumba Gold, and Dance & Sculpt. Zumba Gold is the perfect program for beginners or active older adults as the movements have been modified to recreate the original program at a lower intensity. Dance & Sculpt is a high-aerobic, high-energy, high-intensity class that adds hand weights, drum sticks, and dance steps to enhance the workouts.
