Donation barre classes

Belly up to the bar! The ballet bar, that is.

ReVibe Pilates and Bodywork will hold four Thursday barre classes and donate all monies received to Urban Peak, a local program that supports homeless youth and those at risk of becoming homeless. They work with kids ages 15-20 through street outreach, shelter, education, employment, housing, case management and healthcare coordination.

Essentially, you’ll do ballet and floor exercises – a combination of Pilates, yoga and ballet.

I took a barre class about a year and a half ago, and it was challenging. Repetitive exercises burned out my legs and the core workout was effective.

When: 5:45 p.m. Thursdays, June 5, 12, 26 and July 3
Where: ReVibe Pilates and Bodywork, 115 N. Tejon St., No. 110
Free, all donations go to Urban Peak; 231-6430, revibepilates.com, urbanpeak.org
