Rocking the barre in Rochester, NY since March 2012!
Kerry is a Rochester native and discovered her passion for barre fitness while attending college in Charleston, SC. Kerry explored and practiced barre routinely before earning her personal trainer certification and then her barre teacher certification. After graduating college, Kerry moved back to Rochester, NY in early 2012. She created Roc the Barre, which is her own method of barre. Kerry has been teaching Roc the Barre classes in Rochester, NY since early 2012. She loves to challenge herself (as well as her students) and has a thirst for knowledge, so several times a year she attends additional barre training/updating workshops.
Kerry has years of barre experience. She holds multiple certifications to teach barre in different methods and levels of barre. She also has a Pilates technique certification as well as her Personal Training certification. A barre fitness certification (not just dance experience) is important to your barre classes as this is not a ballet dance class.
Since she has certifications in various barre methods, Kerry is able to offer modifications for each move she does, as well as give you options to 'raise the barre' and challenge yourself more by taking the moves to the next level (2, or 3) in barre class.
Kerry says she teaches a hard class on purpose. She designs her class so her students can't make it through a whole class without taking a little break. Kerry feels that gives her students a goal to work towards, and her students agree.
Rocking the barre soon!
More Roc the Barre instructors coming in the future.
Guest instructors teach special classes on occasion as well!
