BARRE INSTRUCTOR TRAINING COURSE
Where and When
Tell Me More
This course will take you through the physiological and bio-mechanical benefits of barre training, barre-specific training technique, the entire range of exercises we offer, including modifications and special considerations, and of course, show you how to create a fun, engaging atmosphere through music, personality, and energy.
BG-Barre was developed and certified by BarreFly's founder. Your qualificaton ntitles you to teach at any studio in the UK that's looking to bring a little (more) barre into their lives, to provide those classes virtually yourself, and to give one-on-one instruction to private clients. It is fully CPD qualified, so successful completion not only earns you kudos form your students for being so damned FABULOUS; it can also earn you up to 20 CPD points.
The course consists of 2 - 3 weeks of in-person workshop instruction (see below). You will then need to follow thes workshops with a minimum of 5 assisted-instruction studio classes (where we will team you up with one of our existing Fly Girls to co-teach), and you'll certify by teaching your own full class, attended by our most devoted barrebetches, who will give you the 'bums up' or the 't*ts down'.
Because barre is a dance-based fitness classs, a background in ballet is absolutely crucial... BUT! Don't fret if you're not currently posessed of particularly twinkly toes...
We have two course options - one for those who come from a dance background, and one for those who don't. So if you need an extra moment to perfect your plié, book in for the "Full Monty" (3 weeks). And if your toes have basically been twinklin' since they grew in, feel free to book in for "Just the Facts, Ma'am" (2 weeks). You'll skip all the fundamental stuff and head straight to the mats for #barre-specific training.
