Bare All for the Barre presented by RBC Dominion Securities

Join us on September 19th at the Halifax Farmer’s Seaport Market for an evening of live music and the workout of your life in support of Prostate Cancer Canada Atlantic Region.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer to effect Canadian men. On average, 66 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer every day. But, if detected early, the survival rate can be over 90%.

Your clothes stay on! Men often don’t talk about their health, and we want to change that. By “baring it all”, 100 men will step outside of their comfort zone and try a new fitness activity for a good cause.

Barre is a worldwide fitness phenomenon that has its basis in ballet, Pilates, yoga and strength conditioning. Barre is one of the fastest-growing activities in North America and with good reason – in one hour, you strengthen and tone your whole body in a non-impact environment.
