This training course is designed to help bridge the gap between dance and fitness. For those with experience of exercise to music or dance it can be supportive in helping the individual in your class with no understanding of dance based movement. For those with experience of fitness but no ballet, we will provide you with the knowledge and vocabulary that is expected by your class.  This is where most fitness instructors feel out of their comfort zone in barre. We will show you the tricks and pointers that dancers use to finish off movement which can be exciting to a class and want them to take part more often.

Partnered Studios That Are Licensed To Teach Pose Barre

As a centre that can teach Pose Barre, we ensure that they are suitable for our classes and that they are working under a contract with us. There is a £50 per year administration fee to gyms or studios that host our classes which is sometimes waived if they qualify as a premium partner.
