Barre is a dance- and Pilates-inspired workout that combines philosophies of both into one dynamic class. But you don’t need to have a background in dance to give it a try. The instructor of the barre class will guide you through the movements, most of which are small and set to the beat of the music. But don’t let these workouts fool you. Just because the movements are small doesn’t mean they aren’t tough — the next day, you’re sure to feel sore.
