Barre Certification Program Details:

Your instructors, Dawn Holst and Elizabeth Silas will guide you through the comprehensive 3-day program where you’ll learn:

  • in-depth training and exploration of a full 60-minute class, plus at least another 50 minutes of interchangeable short sequences to mix and match
  • how to formulate effective, precise verbal cues
  • optimal alignment for key positions and movements
  • how to sequence your own creative barre classes or mini-sequences
  • fundamental anatomy for cueing and sequencing
  • how to modify standard moves to make them accessible to new students (regressions) and harder for experienced students (progressions)
  • how to pair music to movement
  • ways to inspire students and create community
  • observation skills – how to really see and listen to students
  • how to offer verbal adjustments (while maintaining physical distancing in person or teaching online)
  • making the most of props (and also going without them – teaching barreless barre)

Virtual Training:

You’ll still get all the live, interactive elements of the training discussions and practice teaching sessions—none of it is pre-recorded! We will email you a PDF of the manual or you can pick up a paper copy at the studio.
