It was once a tightly held secret that football players and actresses took ballet lessons for strong, lithe figures. Still, it's surprising that it's taken this long for barre studios to show up for us mere mortals. Now there's The Barre, Minnesota's first dedicated studio, owned by Rachel and Paula Warford. And you don't even need to know a grand jeté from a plié: just line up and follow as instructors lead fat-blasting routines that use your own body and weights. At last: get a dancer's physique without the tutu. 539 E. Lake St. Wayzata, 952-473-0109. thebarrestudio.com
