With cold and flu season right around the corner, you'll need to take every
precaution to keep you and your children safe from germs that can keep you
cooped up at home for days. Plus, you'll also have to count all the time
missed from dance practices.
Of course, as a parent or even a working adult, one of the main questions
that keeps creeping up in your mind is 'Are wooden ballet barres, sanitary?'
This is a very good question and it's one that can be answered very simply
and easily. First, let's look at regular wooden ballet barres:

If you've never heard of Boss Ballet Barres,
you're in for a treat. They were developed by a dancer and not just any dancer
- this dancer was the Boss president's daughter. As an accomplished
ballet dancer with many awards, she knew what kind of barres the ballet world
needed and with a little help from the company's products and extremely
structural strong steel tubing, these unique barres hit the market.
What makes them different from the usual germ-covered wooden
barres? Boss barres are:
With the worry of sanitary issues gone, practicing through the cold and flu
season won't be an issue. Whether you have a barre inside your home or you are
looking to get one for your school or business, knowing these barres resist

If you have a business, be sure to advertise that your barres are
germ-resistant. Due to the fact that simply wiping the barre is all it takes to
remove unwanted grime, bacteria and germs, you can easily wipe it down
after each class to keep colds and flu at bay.

If you're opening a new dance studio, there are going to be many things on
your mind. The space itself, decor, acoustics, and more are all important
considerations that can make or a break a studio. However, one item you really
should invest in from the start is a high quality, free-standing ballet barre.
Of all types of dance studio equipment, ballet barres pull
the studio together and make it a great place to practice.
What are the benefits to installing a free-standing ballet barre in a new
Ballet barres are a necessary purchase for new dance studios. When making
that important purchase, you want to choose a barre manufactured by a trusted
company. Boss Ballet Barres are known for making the strongest portable barres available,
and conveniently ships all over continental North America. Please contact
us for more information.
A ballet barre immediately makes a studio seem much more professional.
Most people associate barres with advanced levels of dance and athletics,
and in many people's minds, they define a studio. Without a barre, you
could really practice anywhere. Installing a high quality barre
shows students you are serious about dance.
Ballet barres are useful for so much more than classic ballet (though they
remain great for that too). All forms of dance benefit by having a barre
to stretch at, and often to practice posture, feet placement and moves
requiring dexterity. Regardless of what kind of dance you will be
teaching, barres will be of use.
- Maximize Space.
Free-standing barres are particularly useful for new, or recently
re-located studios, that may be in a temporary or new space. Perhaps the
room has unconventional dimensions, or is a bit cramped. With barres that
are free-standing, and not affixed to a wall, you have much more freedom
to organize dancers and space the way you want. If you are focusing on
conditioning, move them to the center. If they're in the way, put them to
Boss Ballet Barres can be found in homes, schools, studios and universities all over North America, and we're so happy to see all of the different areas our barres travel to. However, as some of you may know, even shipping one barre can be expensive when it heads out to the extremes of the continent. We make them strong, so their weight counts against the shipping price, as can the length of the barres themselves. We have heard from some of our friends and fans in the past that they would like to buy more barres, but at times the shipping expense can be daunting.
We heard you, and we listened. After going to bat with our shipping company, and working out all kinds of scenarios and ideas, we are very happy to introduce $50.00 FLAT RATE ground shipping per barre, on ALL of our ballet barres. That's a pretty amazing deal, as it can mean literally HUNDREDS of dollars of savings on a typical order.
So how does it work? It's very simple: add any barre to your cart, and the ground shipping for that barre is only $50.00, regardless of where in continental North America (except Hawaii and Alaska, sorry!) you may be. Some examples:
1 x 8-Foot Barre? $50.00 Flat-Rate Ground Shipping (typically upwards of $110.00)
1 x 14-Foot Barre? $50.00 Flat-Rate Ground Shipping (typically upwards of $130.00)
1 x 6-Foot Barre? $50.00 Flat-Rate Ground Shipping (typically upwards of $80.00)
Add more barres, and each one only adds another $50.00 to the shipping total, as below:
2 x 8-Foot Barre? $100.00 Flat-Rate Ground Shipping (typically upwards of $220.00)
2 x 14-Foot Barre? $100.00 Flat-Rate Ground Shipping (typically upwards of $260.00)
2 x 6-Foot Barre? $100.00 Flat-Rate Ground Shipping (typically upwards of $160.00)

We know that above all else born dancers want to perform. They need
equipment to be at the same high level. We also know that dancing is not always
the most lucrative of professions. Dance organizations need to stretch their
budgets as much as the dancers stretch their muscles. Enter Boss Ballet Barres.
We have a reputation for producing the strongest, longest lasting product in
the industry. With Boss, you can make an investment you can depend on.
We have three varieties of barres:
Our product has the strength and durability for continual use whether at
home, in school, in companies, or at competitions. We put the same care into it
that your dancers have placed in their art all these years.
- The Boss Barre Pro Series:
available in 14, 12, 10, and 8 foot models, these barres feature a larger
diameter than the Intermediate Series, made for situations where multiple users will be on the barre at the same time, constantly.
- The Boss Intermediate
Barre: this barre is made from high-grade structural steel and is built to withstand
heavy use in schools, studios and homes
- The Boss Princess Barre:
built in a smaller size and height than our other barres to accommodate young dancers from 2-6 years of age, the Princess Barre has
the strength that can lay the foundation for years of correct practice.
You will not find better portable, free-standing ballet barres for the
money. Hands down, this is the best ballet barre value. Delivery is no problem
either. We ship to any destination in North America.

When we decided to create our ballet barres, we knew they would be the strongest portable ballet barres
available. How? Because our ballet barres evolved from our existing steel
company, Boss Steel Ltd. Founded over 20
years ago, Boss Steel is an industry leader, doing everything from supplying
raw materials to completing custom projects. The daughter of our company's
President (an accomplished ballerina herself) challenged us to create the
strongest portable ballet barres - and we did!
We took our 24+ years of steel expertise, knowledge, and thoughtful construction
and created Boss Ballet
Barres, a division of our parent company Boss Steel Ltd. By combining
our EuroKlemp line of
products with extremely strong structural steel tubing perfected at Boss
Steel, we were able to create a sturdy, durable portable ballet barre. How sure
are we that we've created the strongest possible ballet barre? We offer a
lifetime guarantee for our products.
Our parent company, Boss Steel, goes above and beyond the industry standard
to get the job done right, and we do too. When we designed our ballet
barres, we sought out dance and fitness industry feedback to ensure that we created a barre that
met the needs of actual dance professionals and studios. Consequently, our
barres are stronger, more stable, and longer-lasting than other portable ballet
barres available. We know that dancers need a strong foundation to
learn proper technique, and we're proud to produce a barre they can place their
full trust in. And fitness centers put their barres through even more rigorous paces, which Boss Ballet Barres easily stand up to, over and over again.
