50-hour Barre Fundamentals
Teacher Training

This is the moment to raise the barre!


Willemieke has developed the Barre Fundamentals Teacher Training. An intense 50-hour Barre Teacher Training to equip you with all the knowledge and skills you need to start teaching barre!

The training is based upon the principles of classical ballet and is considered a precision training, focusing on key principles such as alignment, placement, and embodiment.

Whether you are looking to start a new career, supplement an existing one with a practical and dynamic skill set, or simply want to improve your practice by deepening your understanding of barre from the inside out, this program will give you the tools you need.


And: after completing the fundamentals of Barre, you will have the possibility to also join the Barre Accelerated Teacher Training (dates will follow) to bring the focus to teaching the Barre practice confidently and effectively. Using different techniques and deepening the methodologies, you will learn to truly make an impact while teaching.
