Who is BarrElla?


- my name is Ella Proietti and I'm 49 years young 


- I'm an experienced fitness professional whose passion is ballet and dance (latin, hip hop, dancehall/afrobeats, street)


- I believe in teaching only the classes that you love - that feel like fun, not work


- before I became an instructor in 2014 I used to have a desk job from 9-5 which I loathed


- I'm a mum of 2 teens


- I love motivating and helping people of all ages and fitness levels to stay fit and healthy


- I believe that age is just a silly number


- my aim is to provide you with a full body workout, helping you get stronger, slimmer, more toned, more flexible and overall more body confident

What to wear?

No special clothing is required - leggings and t-shirt are fine. Also no ballet shoes or tutu needed - bare feet or grippy yoga socks are best!
Just bring a bottle of water and lots of energy!
