IBBFA Barre Certification is NOT a "Method," "Style," or "Technique."
It’s a fundamental training, an industry standard, that prepares you to become a certified Barre Instructor capable not only of teaching a safe and effective Barre Class in any number of styles or methodologies, but most importantly, understanding the building blocks of Barre, so you can be free to put them together or take them apart any way your creativity inspires you, all while still having a safe and effective Barre Class! You will never run out of potential class combinations, making it easy to match the classes with the needs of your students.
Whatever additional training you acquire, you will always have the foundation to integrate it into any class you teach and have a freedom to make it your own and customize it any way you desire.
