Meet the Barre Boss
Heather (Johnson) Mccreight, creator of barre where you are
Hi! Thanks for stopping by and wanting to learn more about the mad-woman behind Barre Where You Are! I was a professional dancer for over a decade dancing in NYC and on cruise ships before I took the plunge and moved to Charleston, SC (sight unseen!) Here, I not only met my amazing husband, but I also discovered my post-dancer passion - Barre! I earned my Barre Certification in 2013 and then went on to get certified as a Group Fitness Instructor, a Mind-Body Specialist and a Pre/Postnatal Fitness Specialist. In between all these certifications, I also started a non-profit, DancED, that teaches under-privileged students dance during their after-school programs.
After hearing multiple times that “Barre is so expensive” and “I don’t have time to workout at a gym,” I noticed that something needed to change in the Barre World. My goal was to create an affordable and convenient way for everyone to enjoy Barre - hence the startup of BWYA! Whether you Barre in your bedroom, living room or boardroom, I want you to feel my energy and my passion! I believe that every workout should count, so you can expect every class to include a thorough warm-up and stretch with lots of shaking, sweating and smiling in between!
Thanks again for joining me on this journey and I hope to see you “at the barre” soon!
