BT closing June 30th, 2017.

A LOVE LETTER from Owner, Amy B.  
In the last several months, I have maintained our current location on a month to month basis in anticipation of relocating the studio to a better home.  Due to prolonged negotiations and the current status of our lease per our landlord , we have been slated to move out and stop services/classes at 12pm on June 30th, 2017 at 2409 Mount Vernon Avenue.
This message has been difficult to write and deliver because I’ve been tirelessly working to secure a new, better fitness home for BARRE TECH. and its tribe up to this morning.  This is all technical, I know, and a bummer to hear and feel.  But I am obliged to inform that BT does not have a new home yet and we will complete and stop services at 12pm on Friday, June 30th, 2017 in Alexandria.  
So, my heart swells...And I want to wrap my (barre:) arms around all of you to say thank you for making the BT community so loving and fun.  BT is a part of my soul, so I do not have enough words to express the amount of gratitude and love I have for this community.  Our future is uncertain after June 30th, but I will keep you informed.  And I welcome any conversations that I have not had the chance to do in person and of course apologize to everyone for a message and set of unfortunate circumstances such as this despite my efforts.  
No matter what happens, I have SOOO much #barrelove to all the barre Techs (Ashley, Anna, Bri, Briana, Christine, Cassandra, Erika, Shannon, Jenna, Sean) for their friendship and commitment to the BT community and methodology.  That love goes out to the work-study staff too (Corey, Emily, Laura, Sara, Marie, Stephanie, Ashton, and Alicia) for their wonderful presence and kindness to me and the BT community.  You are all so amazing and words cannot explain the gratitude and admiration I have for you righteous #barrebabes!  We are all sad, but please know that whatever happens, BT is very important to me and I’m fighting for HER.  
Keep a close eye on our schedule here> and book as many classes as you can because the person with the highest attendance by June 30th will win an awesome prize…(a gently used) mini iPad! BOOM- one last give away for hitting the barre hard at BT.  And if there is a tie, we will have a good old fashioned plank-off, for the longest to hold shall win this major award:)
