Marnie Alton, founder and creator of the BARRE BELLE technique, has studied dance and movement since the age of 8. She moved from Canada to Los Angeles almost 10 years ago and was immediately drawn to 'barre fitness': a workout that builds strength and flexibility based on many of the same disciplines she learned as a dancer. Marnie was one of the original instructors at the Bar Method, and while teaching there for the last 9 years has trained hundreds of celebrities, athletes and fitness enthusiasts alike. After almost a decade in the fitness industry, Marnie believes that feeling powerful and confident in your own skin is what it's all about. She developed BARRE BELLE as an effective way to achieve this goal.

"Women travel from the mountains to the ocean to attend Marnie's classes and the heartbreaks to be tamed at her barre come in as many sizes and shapes as their body types"
