Barre Amped


This class is taught by:

Elise Bruce

Elise found her first spinning class back in the day when pay-phones were still plentiful in Manhattan and you always had to have cash for a cab. After her first class, she was hooked on that “runner’s high,” and the calorie burn these classes offered. Years of classes and a baby later she was inspired to become an instructor herself. Elise has been teaching spinning/cycle classes for the last 10 years here in NC and in NYC which has given her great exposure and experience in the industry. A lover of Barre, Yoga and Pilates, lead her to be Barre instructor and has been teaching for the last three years. Music is supreme to how Elise creates her cycle classes, taking her clients on a journey where you connect the beat with your RIDE. Elise is RIDE CYCLE STUDIO’s creator and owner.

Dawn Shohfi

Dawn's passion for athletics began at an early age as a competitive gymnast. Her enthusiasm for gymnastics drew her to springboard diving in high school where she earned a national champion title and was 8 time All-American diver at the United States Air Force Academy.
 
During her career as an air force officer and pilot, she continued her active lifestyle of running, mountain biking, spinning, and snowboarding. Always looking for a new challenge, Dawn discovered Barre, and was immediately hooked! Dawn loves the intensity and variety of Barre and Spin, and she is excited to share her passion for seeking new challenges with others.  

Carolyn Levy


My love for Barre stems from my years of dance in NYC where I danced professionally with Frank Hatchett, Savion Glover, the Fly Girls of In Living Color. My passion for dance began when I was three years old and has never faded. I have been trained in ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop and theatre and have choreographed and danced for music groups such as Heavy D and The Boyz. My career has been reignited over the past couple of years where I have been teaching Barre classes, along with Indoor Cycling and Personal Training. When I’m not teaching fitness classes, I’m working one on one with my personal training clients on getting fit, healthy and balanced at MY STUDIO in Chapel Hill which I own and operate.

I also hold a degree in Interior Design and have worked independently for 10 years. My philosophy is "commit, let loose and enjoy the music. Everything else will fall in place and you will discover your inner ballerina."
