Most of you involved in dance have probably heard of or seen Barre Bars, a nutrition bar designed specifically for dancers. Created by two professional ballerinas at the Pittsburg Ballet Theater, they combine fruits, nuts, and, dates, and other natural ingredients of to create a bar that is both vegan and gluten-free. They come in three different cleverly named flavors: Pirouette (cinnamon pecan), Black Swan (chocolate berry) and Ballerina (spirulina). Last semester I had a pointe shoe fitting at a dance store in Boulder and scooped up one of each flavor to try. Especially for long rehearsals and performances, these yummy bars provide 200 calories 24g of carbs for a boost of energy. I definitely recommend trying them!
