DIY Halloween at the barre!

Is your local nb studio hosting Halloween-themed classes this weekend?! (Hello tuck and glow, boo at the barre or boo-ty blast pop-up classes!) Here are some of our favorite halloween costumes we’ve seen throughout the years that are workout friendly. Bonus, they’re last-minute and effortless costumes that are super easy to throw together with likely items you already have on-hand!


Witch: If you have the hat, you’re golden with this costume. All black solidifies your spooky side. Cast a spell on your instructor or neighbor during class to seal the deal!

What you’ll need:

Leggings: black, grey, green, or striped (or striped socks over leggings!)

Top: Black, purple, striped or lace.

Accessories: a witch hat, tutu, broomstick, scary teeth, green face paint, (makeup) mole, long nails, broom



You are magical to your friends, loved ones and us too! Grab your sparkliest or most colorful pair of leggings you have on hand with a similar top, maybe throw on some glitter eyeshadow or a set of ears (your daughter probably already has a unicorn headband!), and voila!

Super Hero:

You are all wonder-women daily in our eyes. So why not put on your armor once a year? This one’s relatively easy to pull off, if you have a little red, white and blue lying around. Accessorize with an optional cape and some metallics and you’re good to go.
