What Does The Barre Code represent?
The Barre Code logo intentionally features varied widths representing the individuality of women (all shapes and sizes) showing up as they are, standing together in pursuit of their own journey and supporting others along the way.
One month into the COVID-19 pandemic, sister-in-law’s Brandy and Danielle Bellina were presented with the opportunity to take over The Barre Code New Orleans! Having been members for years and loving the vision and mission of The Barre Code, they felt a deep tug to contribute to the overall mental and physical wellness to the strong community of women around them. Thus, they dove right in and have not looked back since!
Brandy is a graduate of Mount Carmel Academy, Louisiana State University, and the University of New Orleans (MBA program). She has been a financial advisor for 14 years, focusing on estate and retirement planning. She is an avid tennis player and thrives on being involved with her family and the Lakeview (New Orleans) community.
Danielle is also graduate of Mount Carmel Academy, Louisiana State University, and Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center. She has been a pediatric occupational therapist for 10 years and enjoys exploring the mind-body connection that the wellness field brings. She has been married to her high school sweetheart, Rory, since 2010 and has 3 children: Jackson, Lila, and Charlee. Danielle is a “master trainer” at The Barre Code New Orleans and is certified to teach in ALL of our amazing formats!
How We Do It
We teach badass classes. We go beyond the barre with our all-in-one program: Barre, Bootcamp, and Brawl. Sweat under neon lights to music that drives you, and be led by the most passionate instructors in the industry.
We preach “Nothing to lose. Everything to gain.” We will never idolize slimming shapes or shrinking sizes. We are a safe space for every BODY.
We practice radical self-love. We show ourselves love through movement. We celebrate our unique abilities and strengths.
We work to let go of standards that do not serve us. We build a stronger society. We are a collective of women who accept the differences that make us beautiful, and together, strive for beauty that makes a difference.
Creating A Movement of Empowerment
Women face many challenges, and it is our goal to use The Barre Code platform to raise awareness about challenges and successes centered around body image, mental health, women’s health and wellness topics. We share stories of struggle and triumph to help others know they are not alone and offer a community of support by bringing ‘normalcy’ to issues women historically have faced alone or with shame.
As The Barre Code continues to grow, our vision grows stronger to continue to use our brand as a vehicle to positively impact the lives of individuals worldwide.
