Course Description

The Ballet Physique Barre Certification is a 5-day, 30+ hour intensive study program that will prepare instructors to lead safe, effective, and energizing barre classes. Our trainers are nationally certified, with decades of experiences both in the group fitness studio and on the professional dance stage. During the presentation sections of each training, students will dive into the art of designing an extraordinary class. Topics include: formulas for clear cueing, exercise sequencing, muscular anatomy, injury prevention, modifications, and principles of musicality and playlist creation. Each day, students will also enjoy multiple opportunities for teaching practice, performance, and immediate feedback. To ensure the success of our future barre instructors, we will ask for a final test-out in the form of a video audition. We will also set each trainee up with a mentor for up to three months post-certification.
