Pure Barre, the barre exercise studio franchise that was slated to open an at Reston Town Center in 2014, has chosen a new, nearby location.
According to the company’s website, the studio will open at 12975 Woodland Crossing Dr. in Herndon, but will still be called Pure Barre Reston.
A local franchisee had signed a lease for a space at 11990 Market Street (ground floor of Midtown Condos) in late 2013. The studio was supposed to open in 2014, but there were “unforeseen issues with permitting in our intended space for the Reston studio,” a studio spokesman said.
The Woodland Crossing studio is expected to open in the next few months, and they are currently hiring and training instructors, the website says.
Barre exercise — as in ballet barre — is a recent trend where participants do small muscle movements, similar to the workouts of ballet dancers, to create long, lean muscles. Fees are $25 for single 55-minute class, but packages are available.
There are nearby Pure Barre locations in Arlington, Alexandria, Bethesda, Fairfax, Rockville and McLean.
