An EXTENDED Addition to Our Barre Family!

Today is a BIG day for us here at Boss Ballet Barres.  Literally!  We're very proud to announce our latest addition to our Boss Barre Pro family: The 12' Extended Boss Barre Pro!  Our new barre hasn't been to the studio for a professional photo shoot yet, but below is a preview.  Please note that the sliver bar connecting the upper and lower horizontal barres will, of course, be powder coated to match your barre.

Our 12ft (144 Inch) Extended Boss Barre Pro is a specially-engineered version of our Pro Barres.  The latest design to come out of the Boss Ballet Barres R&D Department, a special process was created to add extreme tensile strength and deflection-resistance to the middle of the barre.  This allowed us to eliminate a third upright leg in the center of the horizontal bars, and have very minimal "sag", if any at all.
So what prompted this new addition?  YOU!  Many of our customers, although extremely satisfied with their 8' and 9' Boss Ballet Barres, were looking for something even longer.  We tested designs, constructed prototypes, iterated on them over and over, and we're ecstatic with the final results (and we know you will be too!).  Currently, we are offering a 12' Extended Boss Barre Pro, and we will be adding a 14' version in the coming weeks.  As always, they will be available in our powder coated semi-gloss Black, White, and even Pink.  And for a really complete aesthetic look, you can even order color-matched (or contrasting) powder coated connectors.
Our Boss Ballet Barre Dolly is the perfect compliment for our new 12' Extended Barre.  Perfect for allowing the barre to be moved around easily.  Like peanut butter and jelly, a match made in heaven.  Please let us know what you think, as we're always listening to our customers for ideas, improvements and refinements to our Boss Ballet Barres and related products.

See You at the UDMA Show!

We're very excited to be attending our very first UDMA Dance Resource and Costume Show this month.  Their shows are considered one of the premier events for dance vendors in the world.  Touted as, "...the place where you will meet the largest gathering of dance vendors under one roof anywhere in the world, and see their most complete product lines and offerings in person."

Held at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Seacaucus, New Jersey, this show is the most attended and popular of the four annual shows the UDMA holds.  Located just accross from New York City, the venue is a busy one, located very close to three major airports.

The show is open on Saturday and Sunday, October 20-21, 2012 from 9am until 3pm.  We will be flying in on Friday to get everything set up, bringing along four of our barres for attendees to inspect and try out, if they desire.

Says the UDMA website, "Our flagship New Jersey show will be wrapping up our annual tour this year, and that means it’s your last chance to explore this year’s hottest dance trends! We’ll be offering top master classes and seminars so don’t miss the action. The UDMA Dance Resource & Costume Show in Secaucus is mere minutes away from Manhattan, so why not splurge at night in the city that never sleeps? Spend the day loading up on dance merchandise, and then head into the city at night for a world class dinner and a Broadway show."

Please stop by and see us if you are attending the show - we'd love to meet you.  We will have some special show discounts available as well, so don't be afraid to ask!  See you in New Jersey!
