Courtney started taking Pure Barre classes in 2019 when she moved to St. Louis from her home state of Wisconsin to begin her PhD in molecular cell biology at WashU. Courtney was immediately hooked after taking her first class! She loves how unique and challenging each class is. Pure Barre was the perfect stress reliever for graduate school and allowed Courtney to take 50 minutes a day to focus on herself. Pure Barre also provided a close-knit community, which was important for Courtney after moving to a new city. After taking classes for two years, Courtney decided to make the jump and become a Pure Barre instructor! Courtney’s favorite part of Pure Barre is the positive atmosphere and supportive community. Courtney is so excited to be part of the Central West End/Ladue Pure Barre team and she can’t wait to LTB with you!
