The Virtual Barre

Playfully Empowering

Changing Perspectives

The Virtual Barre is ready to change your perspective through playfully empowering classes, private training, and our unique community events in New Orleans, Louisiana and online!


Polesque | 5:30PM WEDNESDAYS
Wednesdays in April, get ready for flirty fun around the pole with sexy sequencing and simple spins in our Polesque class. Polesque is our version of what most consider “pole dancing”.

Pole Fitness | 4PM WEDNESDAYS
Join this body-sculpting blast in Pole Fitness Wednesdays! If you have a pole at home, join us for crunches, climbs and more. This beginner friendly pole class has modifications for all levels.

Floor Fitness | 3PM THURSDAYS
Floor Fitness where we’ll use calisthenic moves that need nothing but a mat and floor space near a wall to participate. Expect to get a great workout using only your body weight!

Yin Stretching | 5PM THURSDAYS
This class is our creative yoga blend that combines head to toe moves in a slow yin yoga format. Suited for first timers on up.

Meditation | 2PM SUNDAYS
Join us rain or shine online for a little rest and relaxation with some lightly guided meditation every Sunday from 2:00-3:00PM. Though we typically meditate for between 20-30 minutes, give yourself this hour every Sunday to turn off your mind (and cell phones) and rejuvenate.

After registering you will be given a link to access your session. Tips and donations greatly appreciated! See you at The Virtual Barre!

A Word From Our Students

Lauren J.

I’ve been a member for years, and I’m so glad I found this place! Laci is upbeat, and the classes are so fun that I don’t even know I’m working out. You wanna be buff-pants? You can do that here. Working on your grace? Check. Expand your repertoire of sexy moves? She can show you some. There’s a bunch of different styles of classes, and the website explains it all. Plus, who DOESN’T love flipping upside down and whatnot?!

Lauren J.

My first ever experience in this setting and I absolutely love these classes! Anyone out there nervous of trying don’t be. She is a fantastic teacher and as a newbie, with almost no muscle, I need all the help I can get. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a fun motivating environment to get fit!

I have been a member at The Vertical Barre since 2012 and I could not imagine my life without this and the amazing woman who runs it. I had tried just about all the traditional fitness studios and activities out there. Kickboxing, zumba, workout videos, running, various gym classes, etc. You name it, I probably tried it. Unfortunately, nothing ever held my interest for long, until I found The Vertical Barre. TVB forced me to push my limits and see just what my body was capable. I have gained more self confidence than I have ever had. I can truly be myself here and I owe it all to the amazing people at The Vertical Barre who have become my pole family.

Cecilia F.

As a person who absolutely detests working out for the sake of fitness, I LOVE that the Vertical Barre offers a fun challenge with attainable goals all the while I am benefiting physically. It has become a much welcomed highlight in my week, and a solution to exercising strictly out of obligation. Laci exudes great energy, and always has something positive to say no matter how much work I may need. I am so thankful for this place.

Crazy fun! Good atmosphere, awesome instructor and an overall fun time. Didn’t really know what to expect the first time i went but totally worth it. You’ll definitely see a definite change after a few classes.

David S.

My favorite place to go and work out!! I have never had a bad experience in the past 3 years that I have gone off and on! I love to do the fitness classes and if I just want to have a good time. They have so many options for classes there is no doubt you will find one perfect for you.

I started here at The Vertical Barre 4 years ago. I instantly fell in love with it. I absolutely hate working but pole fitness has me loving it. It’s fun, challenging, and very empowering. The instructor has a saying ” just because you can’t do something now, it just means you can’t do it yet. This place changed my life!
