What made you decide to do a barre certification?

The blend of Ballet and Pilates has interested me for a while now. The grace and strength that comes from these two forms is incredible. This is my chance to become a part of this movement.

How has Movement been a part of your life?

I have always loved to dance. I was not into fitness growing up. The only way I would consider movement was through dance. When I was in my late 20s I started appreciating fitness when I was introduced to dance fitness classes. That interest then expanded into pilates and weight training.

How did you first hear about barre?

I teach classes at YMCA and that’s when I first heard about a Barre class. The lady that taught the classes was an amazing instructor with many years as a professional ballet dancer.

Can you share something you’ve learned so far in the Barre Vida training that you’d like to pass on?

The importance of a whole-body workout! And it is just as important to have a certification program that is there for you every step of the way. I am so impressed with the online program I am doing now and Joanna’s availability to answer questions and comments on your “homework videos” giving you constructive comments on how to perfect a technique to teach the best Barre class that you can.

What is your favorite quotation?
Whatever you are doing today, do it with the confidence of a 4-year-old in a Batman shirt!

Life is short so enjoy every minute. Just try to bring joy to yourself and it will spread to others!

Where can we find you teaching in Houston or if not now, where would you like to teach in the future? Or do you do private classes?

I am hoping to be able to teach a class at the YMCA Shadowbend in the Woodlands, TX and a couple of corporate places where I am currently teaching other formats.

Danielle is one of the current on-line barre training students!! She lives in Houston, TX.
