Hello Dancer Friends

As the summer winds down I think an update on Barre  is quite prudent.  If you’re not familiar Barre then check out our website:

Things are going well so far with our little start up.  We have over sixty retail outlets (store locator) and Barre is also available online at our website and at  And, Whole Foods Pittsburgh is now carrying Barre… they called us!

Whole Foods - local vendor fair (me jumping in picture)

We have also begun the process of re-branding and re-packaging Barre.  Below is a series of photos documenting our photo shoot for the new design–Julia’s gonna be on the box!

Set up and ready to shoot. Thanks PBT!








Our creative team: Alexa McNae – Watson and Friends – is  a former dancer and now a professional designer and art director.  Nick Coppula is a dancer with PBT and professional photographer.

Julia stretches before the magic begins.

Will this make the cut? Which flavor?

Aaron Ingley, originally from Tallahassee, Florida, began his training at the Southern Academy of Ballet Arts and Tallahassee Ballet. Aaron completed his professional training at Pacific Northwest Ballet School in Seattle, WA, where he performed with that company at the 1999 Edinburgh Festival. He was also featured as Tom Snout in PNB’s production of George Balanchine’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream produced for the BBC. He performed professionally with Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre for nine seasons. A versatile dancer, Aaron was featured in numerous classical and contemporary roles and served as the company’s Principal Character Artist during that time.

A consummate innovator, Aaron pushes the boundaries, helping expand the ways in which art is conceptualized and defined through the use of film and by training the next generation of dancers to combine fundamental technique with the fine art of performing. Aaron is a renaissance man of sorts; in addition to ballet, Aaron is a professional actor, a founding partner of MDK Studios, CEO of Barre LLC, and holds degrees in History and General Management from University of Pittsburgh. MDK Studios produces video for local nonprofit organizations and independent films. Barre LLC is a gourmet nutrition foods company that markets and distributes real food bars to fuel ballet and the performing arts.

In his free time he is an avid cyclist and enjoys creating delicious, healthy snacks in the kitchen with Julia. He especially loves tasting all the delicious, healthy snacks he creates, and testing their effectiveness while riding the trails! He wishes to give a shout out to his two cats, Sadler McCorvey Sr. and Dita.
