What is Barre?

Center Stage® Barre is a high energy group fitness class that incorporates elements of pilates, yoga, personal training and dance inspired exercises. We are an ever evolving mix of movement. You will never take the same class twice, continuing to challenge and change your body, producing real results!

We use ballet barres, light hand weights, various other props and most importantly your own body strength to work every muscle in the body head-to-toe using the safest and most effective method of fitness on the market.


We are located on Center St. just south of 4th St. in downtown Royal Oak next to Title Boxing Club. 

405 South Center St. Royal Oak, Michigan 48067

There is a parking structure at 300 S. Center St. a block North of the studio. This structure offers 2 hours free.

What if I have an injury?

All exercises are safe and corrective for the body. Our classes are no impact, emphasizing proper alignment and muscular engagement to strengthen and tone the entire body in the safest way possible. As long as your physician has cleared you for physical exercise we will be happy to offer assistance and modifications to make you feel successful in class.

*Please let your instructor know of your limitations prior to class.

Is barre safe if I'm pregnant?

Of course. The first thing we ask is that you consult with your physician. Once you've been given the OK, stop by the studio for a low-impact, high-intensity workout that's perfectly safe for you and your baby.
