Everyone Loves a Long Weekend!

We here at Boss Ballet Barres want to wish all of our loyal Canadian friends and fans a great Canada Day long weekend.  What are your plans for the weekend?  Heading up to the cottage/cabin?  Grilling on the barbeque?  Let us know in the comments below.  Above all, be sure to stay safe, keep cool and have some fun.  And please, please, do not drink and drive (or boat, or motorcycle, etc.).

A reminder to the studios and schools to get you rorders in for barres sooner rather than later, top avoid the huge rush we always experience very summer.  We recommend getting all of your orders ready to submit by mid-July, to ensure delivery before the new season in September.

Newsletter & More

Yesterday, we published and sent out our first Boss Ballet Barres e-Newsletter, and the response has been fantastic!  If you didn't receive it, you can access it at this link, and feel free to subscribe while there  We will be sending out a quick Newsletter monthly, with featured schools, studios and dancers, as well as the latest product information on our ballet barres.

We also have some more photos of our RDA Autographed Barre winner, Kendall Bottemiller from Vancouver, WA, with her barre all set up and ready for use at her home.  Congrats again, Kendall!

Although difficult to see in this picture, the upper and middle bars are filled with the autographs of many of the accompanists, RDA Executives, Faculty and Honoured Guests that attended in Montreal

RDA Gala Pics and Our Autographed Barre Winner

We wanted to share some more pictures from Boss Ballet Barres' debut at the RDA National Festival in Montreal this past May.  These were taken at the Gala on the final evening of the Festival.  It was great meeting so many people, and we had an amazing time.

A big thank you to our whole team, without whom none of this would have come together.  Geert, Joel, Doug, Geoff, Dave, Andrea, Amy, Mary-Ann, and all the rest.  Also, we wanted to once again thank Gretchen and all the others at Regional Dance America and the Palais des Congres for facilitating the whole event.

The presentations begin.
