Carnegie is an old Steel Town rich in history. Like so much of Pittsburgh, it is a blue-collar town known and respected for its work ethic, passion for life and friendliness. Endure Barre owner, Candice Rush’s grandfather and father owned a steel fabricating company right down the street from the studio. Candice is looking forward to honoring the industrial feel and community at Endure Barre.
