Buffalo & Rochester Indie Weddings Member Spotlight – Hamburg Barre


The Barre Studio, Hamburg is a small, boutique barre studio located on the 2nd floor of a beautifully restored home, now salon, at Lake and Union in Hamburg. The attention to all details makes the space, and the classes, special and inviting. Owner and instructor Melissa Whaley opened the studio with several goals in mind. She wanted to create a beautiful, calming space to get a great workout and also feel like you’re doing something really lovely for yourself (because you are!) Equally as important, she wanted to create community.


“My favorite aspect of the job is building relationships with clients, now friends. We come into the studio, laugh and talk and catch up since the last class, then get down to work. It’s restoring, both physically and emotionally.”

Lengthening and leaning along the way doesn’t hurt either. The studio offers weekly morning and evening classes open to all ages, all sizes, all genders. No dance experience is required. The class is 45 minutes in length and we work individual muscles to fatigue, then stretch to lengthen. With committed practice, barre work results in elongated, lean muscles.


In addition to weekly classes, the studio specializes in private parties… in particular, bachelorette parties. Gather your best gals (or gents) and book a private barre class. You can customize the music, so we could listen to your wedding song as we begin our final stretching, or we can work those thighs to Meghan Trainor’s Dear Future Husband! You can decorate the space if desired, even bring mimosa’s or your favorite cocktails! It’s your day here at the barre. We can accommodate 15-16 guests comfortably, and pricing is $15 a head with a $150 minimum.  You can even personalize as a gift package for your girls with other adorable accessories from our shop, like BKR water bottles and grippy-socks!


But it doesn’t stop there, the bridal offerings are twofold! In addition to bachelorette parties, the studio offers the opportunity to get that booty in prime shape for your big day. Per class packages as well as 1-month, 2-month, and 3-month unlimited specials will give you plenty of time to lengthen and lean ahead of your wedding and your honeymoon! See you at the barre!
