Barre Girl is a week long summer camp held at Twisters Wellness Center in Ambler, where girls ages ten and up can have fun, improve flexibility and grow stronger in mind and body.
The camp will be lead by Dana Leeds and will consist of a Barre class using various props, including light weights, fitness balls, foam rollers, and thera-bands. The Barre class will be a gentle mix of dance, pilates, and yoga. Students will also play fun fitness games and learn the importance of proper stretching. At the end of the day, they will learn to calm their bodies and minds while in shavasana. They will also hear a short story of a powerful woman or girl who changed history. This camp will encourage all girls to be confident, strong and kind to themselves and others.

Dana began training at Twisters in 2012. She soon began subbing, then teaching her own Barre and Pilates classes at Twisters. Dana is a certified Barre instructor through Balanced Body. She continues to take classes at Twisters in between teaching dance and taking care of her twins. She considers Twisters to be her sanctuary where she can let go, and take time for herself!
In Dana’s classes, she uses music and kindness to motivate her students. She believes that a positive, encouraging environment will promote good health in one’s mind and body. Plus, students can use what they learned in class to become a more confident individual.
