The Royal Legs: Inside the Ballet Class Loved by Princess Beatrice and Pippa Middleton


Fancy a touch of royalty with your demi-pliés?

Look no further than the Chelsea branch of barrecore in London, where both Princess Beatrice and Pippa Middleton are regulars.

“Beatrice has been one of our longest clients that we’ve had,” founder Niki Rein tells PEOPLE. “She’s been coming since we opened the first studio in Chelsea [in 2011]. She’s great.”

Meanwhile, ultra-sporty royal sibling Middleton is a recent convert to the 60-minute signature class (at $42 per class), which uses high-energy, low-impact movements inspired by ballet, pilates and yoga and incorporating a barre. (Think pulsing squats on tippy toes that seem to go forever.)


So what is it that keeps the royals (as well as Suki Waterhouse, Rita Ora and Eva Herzigova to name a few) coming back?

“It’s extremely effective at creating really stronger dancer-like bodies,” says Rein, adding: “It elongates the muscles, strengthens the core, lifts the pelvic floor and you get that runner’s high at the end of the class – a real buzz of energy so you make better choices for the rest of the day.”

The Seattle-born Rein previously worked with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson in the U.S (where she trained Gwyneth Paltrow and other A-listers) before moving to London in 2009.
