Andrea Ellis

Andrea Ellis was born and raised in New Jersey where she began dancing at the age of three. Throughout high school she studied dance extensively at Somerset County Vocational & Technical High School’s gifted and talented dance program, New Jersey Dance Theater Ensemble and New Jersey School of Ballet.

Andrea is eager to bring her passion for dance and fitness to Local Barre!

Amber Hirsch

Amber Hirsch graduated from the University of the Arts with a BFA in Dance Performance. In addition to her passion for dance, she has always had an interest in health and fitness and began to explore how the two can be brought together. In 2002, her journey into the fitness industry began as she immersed herself in learning as much as possible through different certifications and life experiences. Some of these certifications include NASM, AFAA, Practical Pliates, Spin and Scwinn. In 2010, her career found the perfect balance of dance and fitness when she began instructing at Local Barre and is now loving her position as Director of Fitness.

Amanda R Robinson

Amanda is a New Jersey native, who began training in dance at the age of 3 and teaching the discipline at her local dance studio at the age of 13. During her teens, Amanda also studied classical ballet and pointe at the training school for the New York City Ballet, The School of American Ballet. During this time, she was casted as a member of George Balanchine’s, “The Nutcracker” and “A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream.” Amanda continued to dance throughout her college years on the nationally ranked TCNJ Dance Team, where she was captain her senior year. Currently, Amanda is a 3rd year veteran as an NBA Dancer for the Brooklyn Nets and has had the privilege to represent the brand performing overseas in eight countries including China, Italy, Brazil, Turkey, London, Spain, Jamaica, and Singapore. Performing over the years, Amanda has realized not only how important health and fitness is to her dance career, but also to everyday life. She understands conditioning on machines at the gym is not for everyone, including herself, and has found that Barre is an awesome total body workout that she cannot wait to share with you!
