Sarita Allen is a world-renowned dancer, teacher and creator of the AILEY Barre, whose career spans three decades with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Sarita’s elegance, technical acumen and strong technical ability brought her to the attention of renowned choreographer Alvin Ailey. Developing a dual interest in both performing and fitness she began studying the Pilates  Technique with Kathy Grant.  In 2015, Sarita created Ailey Barre, designed to give dancers the classic “Ailey Body”. The Ailey Barre class will focus on sculpting the body through barre training to develop longer and leaner muscles using resistance cables and strengthening exercises.
