Dana Harshaw
Studio Owner

After ten years working in professional music theatre, then ten more in software sales, Dana Harshaw's third act is bringing barre3 to Chapel Hill. She found barre3’s online classes while she was struggling with back issues after her second pregnancy, and was immediately hooked. Dana loves barre3’s whole-body approach to health and the importance placed on adapting postures so that everyone can benefit from the workout. Dana shares her excitement over the studio with her husband and business partner Jason, as well as their two children Annabel and Donald.
