Two sisters created a community. A sister tribe. A family.
Audrey Curran and Brooke Lackey took a crazy leap of FAITH and left their homes in Music City, Nashville, TN as they embarked on a journey to Naples, FL! When Audrey's husband was offered a job with a company in Naples, Brooke immediately saw it as an opportunity for both of their families to adventure out together to Southwest Florida and open a barre fitness studio. Just like that Audrey's husband accepted the job, they sold their beloved home, packed up their four kids and headed to the deep south! Within months Brooke's family followed suit as her husband was able to transfer to Naples with his company, she tied up loose ends with her real estate company, sold their home and packed up their two girls with a knot in their stomachs and a dream in their hands!
They knew Naples women would love barre classes - what they didn't know is how quickly they would fall in love with Naples...especially the incredible women they have had the privilege to know through the studio!
In May 2018, Brooke sold her part of the business to our NEW STUDIO CO-OWNER, Erika Carter! Erika started taking classes at The Sand Barre as soon as we opened and quickly became one of our dream team instructors. She has a background in integrative nutrition and has always dreamed of owning her own fitness studio. Erika and Audrey had become close friends when Erika started teaching at the studio - little did they know they would one day also be business partners! They make a great team and have the same passion and love for the studio and their clients!
