What to Expect

No experience required. Our classes are designed to make everyone feel welcome and get a great workout. Wear yoga-like attire (socks are optional) and bring a water bottle. We supply all props needed. We encourage new clients to arrive 15 minutes early to get a tour and meet your instructor.

Play Lounge

It’s easy to fit exercise into your life when you can bring the kids. Minors under 18 years of age are welcome. If minors are on the premises while guardians are in class, you must purchase a play lounge package. Reservations are highly recommended. Please reserve under your name and not your child’s name.


Barre3 is functional training with a twist. Rooted in three fitness disciplines—ballet barre, pilates and yoga—barre3 workouts will have you feeling strong and balanced inside and out. We’re known for building lean muscles, a strong core, and long-term postural benefits.

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.
