Dancers are often thought to have “great bodies,” “slender legs,” and “model looks.”

The girls water polo team took a trip to a ballet barre exercise class at a place called ‘Pure Barre.’ Instead of having practice, the team took on a new exercise class.

“I was super excited to try out a new exercise class. It was unlike anything else I have ever done,” senior Madison Burkhalter said.

Pure Barre was founded in 2001 in Michigan with the simple goal of transforming one’s body by a full body barre exercise. Classes consist of a series of small, isometric exercises aiming to burn fat, sculpt muscles, and create long, lean physiques.

No two classes are the same. The tempo and style of every class is the same, but the exercises and music choice change with every class.

“The class was so much fun. The music was upbeat and I was working out with my teammates which helped with pain I was experiencing with each new exercise,” freshman Lyla Heidorn said.

The toughness of the class provided a great team bonding experience for them. They got to ‘feel the burn’ as a team.

“I would recommend this class to anyone who asks. I felt my muscles being put to work and would most definitely do a class again,” Burkhalter said.
