Barre Company Founders

The Founders

Danielle Smith and Jennifer Travelsted founded Barre Company in 2010. They opened their first Barre Company studio in Bowling Green, KY. Since then, they have licensed two other studios and continue to promote the expansion of Barre Company.

Danielle is a graduate of Western Kentucky University and a former Hilltopper Cheerleader. She grew up competing in gymnastics, dance, martial arts, and cheerleading. Danielle holds several certifications including Barre, Pilates, and Yoga. She explored many types of fitness programs but none could compare with the results she experienced from Barre. She knew she wanted to share this revolutionary workout with others.

Jennifer graduated from Western Kentucky University with a B.S. in Exercise Science. She has instructed group exercise classes for over 16 years and holds certifications in Barre, Pilates, Yoga, Spinning, and Group Exercise. She competed professionally in the National Fitness America Pageant and also regionally in Fitness America ESPN series. 
With an extensive background in cheerleading, gymnastics, and group exercise, creating Barre Company was a natural transition for her.
