Barre in the Park was started by Megan Campbell in 2012 as pop-up barre in Stapleton. It was a community class for friends because at the time, there wasn’t much barre in Stapleton available. Megan’s pop-up barre classes were an instant hit. Soon Barre in the Park grew to become the first barre studio in Stapleton. Megan recently changed the name to Barre Central because classes are no longer in the park. All classes are now in her attached car garage, which has been transformed into a barre studio! The barre classes, instructors and community are undoubtedly top notch. Above all, the founder, Megan Campbell, is a fierce and a powerful force for empowering women and moms. I’m obsessed with Megan, her story, and, how Barre Central Denver got started. Barre in a garage is not what you’d expect from a barre studio in Stapleton. I love how Barre Central breaks the mold!
Barre in the park is changing its name......
Barre in the Park started in July 2015 because I was looking for something different, something “extra” when it came to Barre and the workouts I was getting at some of the local gyms in my neighborhood. I had been taking barre for 2 years by then, including my entire second pregnancy and was approached about getting certified as an instructor. At the time, I was struggling with what “I wanted to be when I grew up” and was a working mom with two children, so I figured this could be a great idea but I was scared as HELL of failing.
