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.
Chelsey Dickinson discovered the Barre Code in 2015. She was new to Dallas and was looking for community, friendship, and her workout home. As a longtime member, she was given the amazing opportunity in 2019 to take over the studio as her own. The Barre Code is extremely special to Chelsey because it was not only her workout home when she first moved to Dallas, but an outlet for her when she needed it the most, going through some of the most difficult times of her life.
The decision to take over the Barre Code was a quick and easy one. She was missing something in her life, and she knew without a doubt that this was the step to move her into a direction of healing and happiness. When she first took over as studio owner and instructor, she wanted to provide the same safe space, outlet, and community the studio had provided to her. Chelsey and her team are passionate about creating a space free of judgment, a place of encouragement but most of all, friendship.
Chelsey was born and raised in a small, South Texas town and never dreamed of being an owner of a fitness studio. She graduated from Texas State University in 2012, and after a few years in Austin, she moved to Dallas in 2014 to pursue a sales job working for the broadcast station of the Dallas Cowboys, 105.3 The Fan, where she still works today. If she’s not working her sales job or teaching at the Barre Code, you’ll most likely find her exploring the Dallas restaurant scene looking for new restaurants and the best patio!
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.
