This is a Ballet Barre fitness class certification. The workout has been inspired by a blend of Ballet, Pilates and Yoga then molded into a group fitness Class. On or off the Barre this certification course moves beyond a traditional Ballet class, blending body weight strength, muscle conditioning using hand weights and tubes along with cardiovascular exercise into a Ballet inspired Barre format. This class works primarily muscle endurance and engages the entire body.  Barre classes typically focus on small, pulsing movements with emphasis on form, alignment and core engagement.

This interactive course incorporates not only Ballet inspired exercises themselves, but how to execute safe and effective technique as well as the ability to give modifications to regress and progress exercises.

Ballet Barre workouts have been popular for many years due to being well rounded.  This class has elements of cardiovascular training, whole body conditioning, balance and flexibility.

You don’t have to be a classically trained dancer to teach Barre
