Manon

Manon Hallay was born in the Pyrenees in the south of France. She started dancing in the Conservatoire de Tarbes and went to Bordeaux at 13 to study in a pre-professional dance school. Two years later she was accepted to the Royal Ballet School of Antwerpen and had the opportunity to work with such choreographer as Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Micheal Shannon. She moved to New York 7 years ago to join the Alvin Ailey school as a scholarship student.
She is now dancing for several dance companies including Amanda Selwyn Dance Theater, Smashworks Dance, and Les Ballets Nomades, but she’s found a new love in fitness, and more specifically Barre.
After earning her NASM CPT, she decided to keep using her love for movement to help others feel empowered by their own bodies and strength.
She has now been teaching at Local Barre for 2 years.
