I started taking class after several friends told me what a great work out it was and how fun it was. I was looking for something to supplement my pilates classes and running. In my first class, I walked into a class with a couple dancers I had just seen in the Fulton's Legally Blonde and a few F&M students. I am not in my twenties, or thirties. I do not have a dance background. I have been doing pilates for a number of years. I was way out of my comfort zone but Marie and the class made me feel right at home. I have been going ever since and love it.
My favorite part about Move It is two fold. I love that the class takes me out of my comfort zone and challenges me in different ways than my pilates and running. I love the smaller class sizes downtown and the personal attention from Marie.
I feel that my sense of balance is improved from the dance-influenced exercises. I’m still working on conquering those shoulder exercises.
I would highly recommend barre classes to anyone who wants to try something they may have never tried before, regardless of their age.
