COBBLE HILL — Burn those carbs with ballet.

Fitness studio “Pure Barre” is opening their first Cobble Hill location, bringing ballet-inspired workouts to the neighborhood.

The studio, coming soon to 266 Court St., will utilize the ballet barre to “perform small isometric movements set to motivating music,” according to their Facebook page and website.

Pure Barre has centers across the country, including two in Manhattan at Union Square and the Upper West Side.

The Court Street studio will be their first Brooklyn location, Brownstoner reported.

The dance-inspired movements focus on areas like the thighs, seat, hips, abs and the back of the arms – “areas where women struggle the most,” according to their website.

Pure Barre did not respond to requests for comment.

Pure Barre is the latest addition to the neighborhood’s fitness craze as Lululemon opened a full-service store on Smith Street in June.
