We really want you to be successful

Unlike a lot of courses that aim to sign you up, train you and then send you on your way… we are looking to train and then hire our strongest barre training graduates. Our goal is to ensure that you are prepared to acquire work opportunities after completion of this course.  We want you to be successful, so if you are willing to put in the time and effort, we will be there to help you achieve your goal (hence why we can only offer this teacher training every 6 months).

Our motivation truly extends beyond signing you up for a training course. Don’t believe us? Come take classes with our graduates from our 2023 groups who are already teaching in our studios after lots of dedicated practice time, support from our small group, plus extra contact time and resources based on individual need.


“The 3-day barre teacher training was incredibly valuable, taught by trainers with incredible expertise in the field of Barre. Would highly recommend this training if you are interested in becoming a Barre teacher, you will learn all the skills you need!”

Graduate from May 2024 Course

To join this training

• You should be practicing barre regularly at a good application level OR

• You are already teaching pilates, group fitness, dance or personal training OR

• You are a teacher with other backgrounds such as Yoga, Gymnastics, Reformer Pilates, etc.

In short, while this course is open to all, it is highly recommended that you practice Barre regularly OR come from a trainer background in relatable disciplines.

The realistic commitment for success

Additionally, it is important to ensure you are realistic about the commitment for this course. If your goal is to teach at the end, then this is not a “3 days and done” course – at least not for most trainees.

So what is realistic?

Well we will give you some prerequisite reading 3 weeks before the course begins – this will cover areas such as: what is barre, the history of barre, anatomy, foundational barre positions, useful terminology and helpful insights into how to prepare to think like a barre instructor versus a barre student. We want to use our in-person contact time to teach you how to be an incredible instructor, not teach you what Barre is or where it came from (if you are considering becoming an instructor then we think you should already know this much in advance).  Additionally, after the 3 day course you will have access to our studios to practice for your first class.

If you are unsure of whether your level is suitable for this course or have any other concerns, drop us a message and we can support you in assessing if this course is right for you.

More Trainers, More Knowledge, More Inspiration

Unlike many training courses that are taught by one teacher trainer on or offline, our Studio 191 Teacher Training brings you the expertise of several leading barre instructors and recognised teacher trainers in person, to bring you a wealth of experience and value to your learning.

In this Barre teacher training we will cover

Teaching Barre Fundamentals

Start the day with a Studio 191 Barre Workout (of course).

Understand range of movement and the fundamental lessons of proper form.

Breakdown some key Barre positions exploring how each should look and feel.

Understand the key terminology of barre + developing your personal cues. 

Learn our 5 step teaching method.

Find your teaching voice, let go of your inhibitions before day two.

Setting up a Studio 191 Barre class.

Origins: From Ballet to Barre Workout

Special workshop called: ‘Origins: From Ballet to Barre Workout’ where we explore the correct form + alignment of ballet and how we carry forwards this proper form into our Barre workouts.

This workshop contains both theory and practical exercises to learn how to accurately perform ballet exercises and then transform those exercises into safe, effective Barre Workout moves. 

Understand the common mistakes occurring in many barre workout classes and how to use correct form and alignment to teach high quality barre – as a workout with cues that are viable to everyone, even without any ballet knowledge. 

By the end of this module, you’ll be able to teach your first few barre exercises by cueing proper form whilst using non-ballet verbal cues that your whole class will be able to follow. 

Deeper Barre Anatomy & Physiology

We’ll take a deeper look at how our bodies move and function in relation to Barre in our ‘Deeper Barre Anatomy & Physiology’ module.

Learn the correct terminology to use when teaching barre-specific exercises and ranges of movement. Understand the reasons why we give certain cues – know the purpose behind what you are asking students to do. 

Learn how to manually and verbally adjust students with confidence through understanding how the body moves when performing barre exercises & using accurate terminology to guide them.

Get ready to learn the theory, feel it for yourself and then apply your learnings with a fellow training student. This module will give you the chance to teach several barre exercises with proper form, accurate cueing and also to provide adjustments.

This module will be split into two parts over two days to allow you to gain a deeper understanding and plenty of practical time to apply it to your teaching. 

Musicality & Method

This module comes back to our 5 step method for teachers – here is your chance to really hone your skills and apply everything you have already learnt…to the beat of the music.

Learn proven methods in how to successfully teach classes without doing every repetition and constantly counting out loud to the class. We will help you teach on the beat, to make space in your teaching to leave the barre to adjust and assist your students.

This module will also look at how to select music for your classes, finding the beat, choosing which exercises to select for various music styles and how to teach on the beat.

A key feature of this module will be to learn our 5 step barre teaching method – how to teach in a structure that will have students moving to the beat even after you (the teacher) have left the barre. Get ready to teach each other using the beat of the music in this module!

Props, Props, Props

Studio 191 Barre classes love props and so our training includes a full module on “how and why” for each prop (as well as any contraindications you need to know).

We’ll look at how to integrate the following into your barre classes: inflatable barre balls, resistance bands, Bala power rings, Bala ankle/wrist bangles, core sliders, pilates rings, 1kg dumbbells and blocks. 

This module is full of fun challenges – tasks that we set up for you to practice implementing props into barre exercises and to learn how to apply new cues to your classes (when using props). There will be a lot of time to practice teaching in this module.


Creating Choreography & Presentation Skills

Learn the art of a well designed, well balanced barre workout with tools and templates that support you in quickly and effectively designing classes that can be easily adapted, remixed and spiced up.

Find out more about the resources and inspirations of many Studio 191 Barre Instructors in sourcing, creating and designing their class choreography.

Learn how to cue clearly, project your voice, use language that all students will understand, use intonation, gesture and more for successful class presentation.

This module will also include how to approach regressions and progressions – how to create, demonstrate and motivate effectively. 

You will understand how to use your voice and various types of cues effectively by the end of this module. Get ready to practice presenting a fun barre sequence choreographed by our master instructor – taught to you and then by you!

Business of Barre

Prepare to receive practical tips and guidance on how to use this course (and beyond) to set yourself up with a successful barre business. From getting set up to preparing your CV and demo video, to what studios are looking for to the power of your social presence and beyond – this course will give you all the insights. 

This course also leaves space for group Q+A as well as contact time to ask any specific questions you may have one-to-one.

“The experience was well organized and very welcoming. It felt like a safe space to learn, try new things and explore with new friends. I can genuinely say that I gained a wealth of knowledge.”
