  • Figure 4 Barre
  • Created by a NYC ballet dancer and exclusively at Pure, Figure 4 is the most challenging barre experience out there, enhancing precision dance techniques with strength training. With high-energy choreography and interval cardio, Figure 4 keeps your pulse pounding while forging a lean, sculpted physique focusing on the thighs, arms, abs, and glutes. Socks with grips or bare feet for class.

  • Figure 4 Fierce Dance Cardio
  • Figure 4 Fierce combines all the benefits of a dance cardio class with the strengthening and toning elements of a standard Figure 4 barré class. This is a high intensity workout that mixes cardiovascular aerobic dance combinations with interval training to target the thighs, arms, abs, and glutes. Easy to follow, energetic moves are created to make you burn calories and release endorphins. No worries, this is not zumba and you won't be twerking! All moves are easy to follow and focus on keeping your heart rate elevated and your confidence soaring.  Sneakers are required for class.

  • Baby Wearing Figure 4 Barre
  • Combining the benefits of ballet, Pilates and prenatal yoga, our signature baby-wearing barre class provides mom with a workout that will tone and strengthen her post natal body while creating a stronger bond with baby. For parents and babies up to one year, please bring a suitable carrier comfortable for you and baby.

     


  • Figure 4 Barre
  • In this challenging program suitable for all levels, there is an emphasis on alignment, stretching, and proper technique. Instructors are hands-on and guide the class at a slower pace, making it ideal for beginners or those looking to build a stronger foundation.

  • Pre/Post Natal Figure 4
  • Created by professional dancer Kate Albarelli, Pre/Postnatal Figure 4 is a full-body barre method exercise designed to strengthen and tone the body by using elements from ballet, Pilates, pre-natal yoga and weight training. For comfort & support, the class uses props such as ballet barres, pregnancy wedges, fitness balls & rings to allow for a safe and effective workout, without decreasing the intensity of the method. By targeting specific areas of the body such as thighs, abs, glutes and arms Pre/Postnatal F4 helps to keep weight down during pregnancy while preparing the body for labor and recovery. The high-energy class keeps your heart-rate in a "fat-burning zone," so the body safely burns fat while building muscle. Classes are limited to give the feel of a semi-private and to allow each student access to personal attention.

  • Figure 4 Forty-Five
  • Take the express route in the 45 minute class designed for those who want to achieve the benefits of Figure 4's all-around approach in minimal time.
