About Barres

Barres was established in 2019 by Artistic Director Megg Geri to provide a positive release for creative communication for flourishing young dancers ages 3-18 as well as for adult dancers (beginners to advanced).

Barres offers classes in Kirstenhof serving the Kirstenhof, Tokai, Constantia, Lakeside, Muizenberg, Meadowridge, and Bergvliet areas. We want to share our passion for movement and art, encourage everyone to get involved, and live happily and healthily.

We offer a wide variety of dance forms, classes and packages for both children and adults. We are excited to be the only dance studio in South Africa to offer the Melody Movement Early Learning syllabus for children aged 3-8 years. We are accredited with AFSA (Acrobatics Federation of South Africa), SABOD (South African Body of Dance), as well as MMEL (Melody Movement Early Learning).

At Barres we offer classes in; Contemporary, Acrobatics, Tap, Hip Hop, and Barre. We have classes for everyone from tiny tots (3-years) all the way up to adults.

We welcome all newcomers to attend a trial class free of charge. We want you to ask us any questions, so feel free, our details are at the end of this prospectus.

At our studio, our dancers are taught life lessons of teamwork, commitment, responsibility, and work ethic through the art of dance.

Excellent technique

At Barres we focus on the execution of dance moves with precision and excellent technique. Technique is an essential part of dance, and important as it assists in the longevity of the dancer. The use of good dance technique helps to prevent injuries, build strength and flexibility, as well as refine movements. Good technique as well as correct stance and posture are essential to perfect turns, leaps, and jumps.
