You've seen this scenario many times on TV shows and in movies: a ballerina practicing her pliés and tendus holding onto a wood, wall mounted ballet barre. What you may not know is that ballet barres have developed by leaps and bounds over the past few decades and one of the leaders in portable barre production is Boss Portable Ballet Barres.
Whether you're a studio owner, dance class instructor or a fitness
buff who likes to workout at home, there are many advantages to using free standing ballet barres vs. wall mounted barres. Here are the top 5:
1. Portable ballet barres can be configured to maximize
teacher/student interaction. Instead of students always facing a wall or
mirror and having to turn their heads to see their instructor, Boss
Barres are lightweight and can be easily moved from one spot to another
or from room to room.
2. Boss Ballet Barres are made of durable long lasting structural
steel tubing, designed in collaboration with many studios and schools. In fact, it was the daughter of the president of the
parent company, Boss Steel, Ltd., who originally came up with the idea.
And, she was an accomplished dancer to boot!
3. Wood barres collect dust, dirt and germs, harboring bacteria and transferring them from person to person. Boss Ballet Barres are easy to
wipe down and can reduce the transfer of germs from continued use.
4. Because dancers touch, hold onto and continuously pull on wood barres,
they eventually splinter and can cause damage to the walls. That's never
the case with Boss Portable Barres because they're free standing and
made from sturdy steel.
5. While traditional wood barres are one height and the same distance
from a wall or mirror, Boss Barres come in different models -- from the
Boss Pro and Intermediate to the Princess Barre for beginners. Plus,
our barres come in different lengths with extensions available on some
