Pure Barre

This Saturday, I finally got around to using a voucher from Rue La La for Pure Barre Philadelphia. I first heard about ballet based workouts when I read this article from the New York Times. Having danced modern and ballet most of my childhood, I was desperate to try out a class and when I saw the voucher, I snatched it right up. It's safe to say the article had me a little confused, I showed up on Saturday in my ballet slippers and had debated wearing a leotard. Oops. Pure Barre is much closer to an aerobics class than a dance class, which had me slightly disappointed as I was looking forward to reliving my childhood of pliés and relevés; but boy did it kick my butt! After two full days of recovery, today I am finally not oofing and aaing as I move around - my arms, legs, abs, back - everything has been sore. While not what I was first expecting, I'm hooked and will certainly be back for more. If you're interested, check here to see if there is a studio in your area.
