Special notes and health advisories for our Barre classes.
Do I need to have a background in dance or ballet to join Xtend Barre?
Xtend Barre is for everybody regardless of background! The workout is relatively intense for most first-timers as it trains small muscle groups that regular exercise doesn't, but fear not. All our Xtend Barre classes are great for beginners and we encourage clients to try different instructors to find the teaching style that they are most comfortable with. We recommend for a start that you join our Xtend Barre Fundamentals class.
I’m completely new and not very flexible, can I join the regular Xtend Barre class?
Our Xtend Barre classes are suitable for newbies. We recommend new clients to start off with our Xtend Barre Fundamental to help you ease into the workout at a slower pace and familiarise yourself with ballet terminology. Once you feel more comfortable and ready, you may join the standard Xtend Barre classes which are multi-level classes.
However, it's not a must. Our regular Xtend Barre classes are suitable for all levels of fitness. Please let your instructors know before class on any injuries you have and our instructors will be able to provide modifications in class.
What are the pre-requisites for Xtend Barre Stick class?
To have a fully enjoyable and immersive experience of our Stick classes, we require clients (including those who have experience with Pilates, ballet or other barre workout) to be well-versed in the Xtend Barre method with a minimum of 5 Xtend Barre classes before joining the Xtend Barre Stick class.
