Try 80s-Themed Fitness Class Nov. 12 Free

On Monday, November 12, there will be an 80s themed Barre fitness class in Goolrick Hall Dance Studio 5 at 6:30 p.m. The class will be 60 minutes and is free to the UMW community (no group fitness pass needed).

Carolyn, one of Campus Rec’s certified barre instructors, will be creating an 80s-themed playlist for this special class. All participants are encouraged to wear bright colors, leg warmers, scrunchies, high pony tails, and other 80s attire that is appropriate for a fitness class.

Barre is a trendy fitness class inspired by ballet, Pilates, and yoga. In this format, participants use their body weight, the ballet barre, and a set of light dumbbells to tone muscles and improve flexibility.
