About Elisabeth Halfpapp:

Elisabeth began her barre fitness journey as an associate in Dance Education at the School of the Hartford Ballet. From that moment she knew this would become her life’s work. Trained in classical ballet, she saw the future in barre training early on. She became a pioneer leading the Lotte Berk Method (LBM) in New York City and Los Angeles, attracting an eager audience looking to adopt a new fitness regimen. Following more than two decades growing the LBM business, Elisabeth became one of the founding partners at Exhale, where she developed the propriety barre class as well as the cardio and yoga programs. With the barre industry’s growing admiration for the Exhale brand as the industry leader, Elizabeth co-created the Exhale Barre Teacher Training certification and Yoga Teacher Training programs. She also created a series of more than 10 barre videos and co-authored the Barre Fit-ness Book which has quickly become the industry’s revered bible. After helping to grow Exhale to more than 26 locations, the company was acquired by Hyatt, where Elisabeth was promoted to Senior Director of Mind-Body Fitness at their Miraval properties.

She has danced with the Mercer Ballet, Princeton Ballet, Hartford Ballet, and continues to perform as the “Dutch Mom” in Dances Patrelle The Yorkville Nutcracker! She is also an ABT Certified Ballet Teacher in Pre-Primary through Level 3.

With her sights set on leading her own classes and training curriculum, Elisabeth started CoreBarreFit in 2019. She is a sought after authority and expert in the field, frequently appearing as an industry spokesperson on national media as well as an expert presenter at trade events. Elisabeth is excited to continue offering her unparalleled expertise to loyal fans through her own venture.
