DREAM Barre Fitness
DREAM Barre Fitness is an intense total body workout that fuses techniques from Ballet and Pilates. We emphasize proper alignment zoning in on women's problem areas: abs, thighs, glutes, and arms. Through intense isometric movements with high repetitions, light weights, and use of your own body weight, we fatigue and stretch the muscle group, achieving long and sculpted muscles. Some exercises use a larger range of motion that keeps our heart rate up while protecting our joints. The workout requires total mind and body concentration so that after an hour you have exercised both your mind and body for the day! With a healthy diet and lifestyle, our clients see results after just 10 classes. Want the look of a long, lean, sculpted dancer, but never owned a pair of ballet shoes? Miss your old ballet shoes? Then DREAM Barre Fitness is perfect for you! Either way, you can get your DREAM body at DREAM Barre Fitness! Come see us soon!
Benefits of Barre:
Increase muscle density
Decrease body fat
Improve posture, flexibility, and range of motion
Protect your joints

DREAM Barre Studio is a beautiful facility that offers our clients a state-of-the-art workout room with sprung floors, mirrors, and barres. We have dressing rooms and cubbies for your belongings.

DREAM Barre Fitness Q & A:
1. What do I wear and need to bring?
fitted work-out pants or capris
tank top or comfortable work-out shirt (no mid-drift tops, please)
socks (we sell these if you do not have them)
water bottle (no other liquids permitted besides water in studio)
2. I haven't worked out in a while; can I do this?
The workouts are intense because we believe the reason you're coming is to see results and change your body. Our instructors always show modifications for all of our exercises, making this class appropriate for the beginner to advance. We offer a selection of weights to choose from, allowing you to pick the weight that is challenging for your body.
3. What music is used?
We constantly are changing and mixing up our playlist for the class. We use a variety of styles of music, keeping it upbeat so that are clients are not bored.
4. Should I expect the same work-out every class?
Every class will have concentrated exercises that target the abs, thighs, glutes, hips, calves, and arms. However, we frequently change our choreography to challenge our minds and our bodies. We will always use the ballet barre for support and balance, the mat for the floor, a small playground ball, and light hand weights.
5. How often should I take barre classes, and do I need to do other forms of exercise with barre?
For maximum results we recommend taking 3-5 barre classes a week. All of the classes incorporate cardio and strength, making the class a complete work-out, but it is always up to an individual to incorporate other fitness exercises.
6. If I have an injury or am pregnant, can I take the class?
We always recommend you consult your doctor, but YES! Please notify your instructor so he or she can be aware of any additional modifications you need before the class.
7. Is child care offered?
YES! We are unique in that our program offers child care for you! However, we do request that when you sign up for classes, you tell our staff how many children you will be bringing to our Play Zone. We take children ages 3 months – 12 years old on Monday through Friday mornings.
8. How is DREAM Barre Fitness different from other Barre studios?
DREAM Barre Fitness is different from most barre studios out there in that we offer two formats for barre. We have our challenging DREAM Barre Sculpt and our DREAM Cardio Burn Barre.
We are also unique because while working out, you can also enroll your child in his/her own extracurricular activity. Family D.R.E.A.M Center offers a variety of kids’ classes/lessons such as:
DREAM Dance Conservatory classes
Etiquette and character-building classes
and much more!

Acro-tumbling develops strength, flexibility, and discipline while improving your kinesthetic learning in a fun and structured environment. Tumbling with one of FDC's highly certified tumble instructors is a great way to build confidence in your child or youth.
Tumbling is a form of acrobatic activity that involves warm-ups, forward and backward rolls, backbends, walkovers, back springs, cartwheels, round offs, jumps, back hand springs, and much more. From toddlers to Level II tumblers, we offer classes in our facility that have padded spring floors, mats, and tumble equipment.

Level I & II Tumble: Wednesday 6:00-7:00pm
Why should my child take acro/tumbling? Are there benefits for child when taking acro-tumbling?
Yes! Acro-tumbling teaches essential skills needed for competition and builds full-body strength for the dancer. Cartwheels, front and back walk-overs, aerials, back handsprings, and more are constantly used in competition.
If your child is considering auditioning for competition teams acro-tumbling is important to their success in making a team. What can I expect my child to work on in acro?
FDC acro-tumbling classes are progressive, meaning what is learned at the beginning Level I class will be carried over to the Level II class. We concentrate on perfecting skills as your child moves up.
In Level I classes, your child will learn the importance of protecting their body should they fall when learning how to roll. The basis for all progressive moves such as cartwheels, front and back walkovers/handsprings begin with mastering and perfecting a handstand. Also taught in Level I are perfect back-bends and kick-overs.
Level II classes will consist of teaching front and back walkovers, dive cartwheels, and handspring drills, as well as, perfecting Level I skills.
When should my child begin acro?
As with other skills, the sooner your child is able to begin the sooner they build skills needed for acro-tumbling. Our acro/tumbling classes begin at age 2 1/2 and are a great addition to the curriculum for young dancers as it greatly enhances their core strength.
Enrollment in acro-tumbling can happen at any age, as age does not determine ability. Check with the front desk to enroll your child in the appropriate class.
Why enroll in Acro-Tumbling at FDC?
Our commitment to our dancers is to provide the very best instructors and equipment in-studio.
Family D.R.E.A.M. Center dance has three state-of-the-art studios featuring spring-loaded floors which allows dancers to try skills in a safe environment.
