You’ve heard that some barre trainings teach fake barre. (that’s true)

You’ve heard that some yoga studios just hang a ballet bar on the wall and call it barre. (that’s also true)

And you’re sure that there has to be a better way to become a certified barre teacher. (finally, that’s true!)

We are excited that you have chosen to become a Barre Instructor. And we are excited to teach you all the wonderful things Barre can do for you.

Our goal is to create intuitive, confident, thinking instructors. You will learn how to progress a client through the class with regards to their particular needs. We are going to give you the tools to be able to train every body, as every body that comes to class is different. The Absolute Barre teacher-training program is designed with that in mind. The course integrates both ballet AND fitness exercises together in one course to teach you how to teach several formats of barre classes.

Course Structure:  The Barre Training Course integrates both ballet AND fitness exercises together in one course to teach you how to teach several formats of barre classes. Over the course of a training weekend, observation and practice, students will become fluent in teaching over 30 barre exercises, as well as innovative modifications to challenge or simplify each exercise according to varying levels or common injuries.
