New Berlin Studio Owner
Kippy grew up in the Brookfield/New Berlin area. She attended Fashion School at the Art Institute of Illinois. After college, Kippy worked in the restaurant industry for nearly 15 years, where she developed a love for cooking, wine, and beer.
Kippy had always held gym memberships and attended various fitness classes, but when she found Barre it changed her fitness life! It was Kippy’s sister-in-law that invited her to a class at Barre District, and it was love at first class. After moving back to New Berlin in 2016, it was apparent that a Barre District studio was much needed in the area. After months of planning, searching, and saving, the perfect studio location presented itself. With the help of family and friends, Barre District New Berlin opened in September 2018.
Besides barre, yoga, and long walks, Kippy enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, crafting, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.

She's passionate about helping others find their perfect workout, and thinks everyone could use a little barre in their life!

“I’ll never forget my very first class. Looking around at the other ladies wondering I was doing it right because my arms wanted to fall off, and I had already dropped my weights... Then, I swore a girl across the room was just showing off! But now I know that it does get easier, still challenging, but easier. The body gets stronger. You just have to keep pushing yourself!”
During her down time ToriI tries to be outside as much as possible. She loves to get out hiking with her two boys, and with out them, as much as possible. Other than that Tori is a Magnolia junkie, spends an incredible amount of time weeding, and is an equal parts green smoothie to Beer Garden enthusiast. All about that #balance.

Emily has always been a particularly active person. She has a background in martial arts and has a love-hate relationship with running. It wasn't until she found barre that she fell in love with a workout. Barre District is a community that has taught her to respect and love her body.
