What Customers Say


"The Movement's barre classes are fun, challenging, dynamic and very fulfilling!

I attend Barre Power Burn and Barre Burn Movement classes weekly, and I like how Melissa is attentive to each individual and guides us on the right posture & deeper muscle engagement; at the same time making everyone groan in pain each time she says “almost there!”.

She is always encouraging, yet firm, and can improvise or provide alternatives according to our physical conditions. Her killer classes always leave me in pools of sweat with an aching body but I always come back for the next class a little stronger than before.

I was initially afraid of barre due to the intensity and the stereotype that it’s only suitable for people who are already fit, but I’ve learned that people of all shapes and sizes can be challenged and benefit from barre!"

"When I was younger I took ballet lessons for about a year but had to quit because I had too many interests.

It’s always been something I wished I had carried on doing and I’m so glad I stumbled upon barre classes with The Movement!

I feel stretched and pleasantly challenged after every session, and I love that I can express myself freely through the wide variety of movements tailored for each class.

You know it’s a good session when you’re aching the next morning, but it hurts so good."
