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.

Customer Stories
  • “The instructors really care if you have correct form, which doesn’t always happen in other group exercise classes.”

    – Erin W., Santa Rosa
  • 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.

    – Kia S., Piedmont
  • “As challenging as it is during this 60-minute class, I always feel like I am floating on my way out the door, and each time I can’t wait to sign up for my next leg-shaking session (set to great music, of course).”

    – Lisa K., SF Mission Castro
  • Sara Provenzano, Elmhurst

    “My Dailey practice has taught me that when you are preparing for something challenging inside and outside the studio you need to breathe to make space for it. This committed practice inside and outside the studio has taught me to have a strong foundation, align then move. It has become a way of life for me personally and professionally to be just as strong as I am flexible.”

    – Sara Provenzano, Elmhurst
  • After having 3 children in less than 2 years, The Dailey Method helped me shed the weight I had gained and recover the energy, strength and flexibility that I had lost throughout pregnancy.  After starting to combine the newer Dailey Interval class with my regular Mixed classes I’ve seen an even greater total body transformation that I never could have imagined!

    – Erin M., Northbrook
  • “Classes are always filled with familiar faces from around the community, making it easy to share a laugh or two after a great workout.”

    – Tom Sandt, La Grange
  • “Nothing else I’ve tried comes close to feeling as healthy or as effective as the low impact, slow and controlled movements of TDM.  I love the instructors, the other clients, and the warm and encouraging atmosphere. The Dailey Method has become a staple in my life and I’m so grateful to have found it.”

    – Julia B., Calabasas
