Xtend Barre Newbury Street owner Amanda Cort discovered and fell in love with Xtend Barre in 2013 while living abroad in Sydney, Australia. Dancing since the young age of two, she was ecstatic to find a workout that incorporates her lifelong passions for dance, fitness and the performing arts. She knew immediately that she had to bring this amazing workout back to Boston and introduce Xtend Barre to her hometown. She is so thrilled to see her dream of building a beautiful studio in the Back Bay come true and can’t wait to Xtend with you!
At the age of 3, Andrea started dancing in her hometown of Cleveland, OH and continued dancing at Boston University as a member of its nationally ranked dance team. After graduating with a degree in Biomedical Engineering, she needed to find a way to keep in shape and found Xtend Barre. She loved how great of a workout she got while still connected to her dance roots. Andrea promises you will sweat every time and hopefully challenge yourself to do things you never thought were possible.
