Exploding onto the scene in 2000, ballet barre fitness has become one of the top workout practices in the world. Jill Dailey ignited the barre fitness boom when she opened The Dailey Method’s first studio in San Francisco. 57 Studios and  3 continents later, The Dailey Method is growing and innovating like never before.

When The Dailey Method first opened its doors in San Francisco’s Marina District, it changed the landscape of group fitness classes. The Dailey Method’s explosive combination of body toning exercises samples the best aspects of diverse disciplines such as dance, yoga, kinesiology, and pilates to create the world’s most efficient and effective full-body workout. The original Marina studio is still the longest-running barre fitness studio on The West Coast.

The Dailey Method is at the forefront of fitness research. Throughout our 14-year history, we have continually evolved and expanded to offer research-tested, exciting, and fulfilling group exercise classes around the world. We’ve created a phenomenon, a culture, and community based on sound principles and fueled by our passionate students.

What is the Dailey Method?

At the cutting edge of fitness research, The Dailey Method combines ballet barre work, core conditioning, and muscle strengthening through yoga, pilates, and orthopedic exercise. Unlike other group classes, The Dailey Method ignites awareness through hands-on training and education. Our intrinsic focus on alignment and strength results in better posture, better movement, and a better you.

    I found out about the Dailey Method early in 2013 as I was looking for a new exercise program – I tried a class and loved it from day 1. The instructors are upbeat, encouraging, positive and inspiring. My practice includes all 3 classes – Principles, Mixed and Interval – all are challenging and provide me a great workout, and it didn’t take long to see results.

    “I also love the mind-body connection and how I feel after attending a class. Thank you Dailey Method Vancouver!”

The Dailey Method has become a staple in my life and I’m so grateful to have found it.”

  • I love the Dailey Method. It keeps me strong, and limber, helps me keep a healthy back and healthy joints. The teachers are amazingly knowledgeable. I also love that there’s a big range of ages of women in class. I can see strong models of aging beautifully and aging strong that make me feel very hopeful about my own future.

  • I have always had scoliosis & have suffered from chronic daily pain for more than 10 years. Discovering The Dailey Method has been like a breath of fresh air! In a short amount of time I have increased my overall strength and flexibility and now have the confidence that I can feel good again. The teachers are very well trained, motivating and are attentive to every student adjusting them to ensure they are doing it effectively and safely.
