The Xtend Barre Workout is the premier ballet barre workout… Dance and Pilates Amplified. Andrea Rogers is the creator and owner of the Xtend Barre Workout and has been a professional dancer and choreographer since the age of 18. She’s performed with various celebrities and recording artists such as Enrique Iglesias and Aaron Carter. She’s also traveled the country with several professional dance companies and performed as a principal dancer for Walt Disney World Co. In the early 2000s, Andrea was certified to become a classical Pilates instructor. She believed in the Pilates principles (stabilization, concentration, control, flow, breath and precision) and observed the long-term results in her Pilates clients.
In an effort to provide cross training and seek better results for her clients, she began to incorporate dance elements and music into her Pilates sessions in order to offer challenges in coordination, rhythm, and cardiovascular fitness. By raising her Pilates clients to a vertical position, and diversifying their range of motion, Andrea found greater results by offering Xtend Barre than by maintaining a routine of Pilates alone. Most importantly, her clients were gaining energy, enjoying elements of dance, and having fun!
