FAQs















WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE BARRE BODY FOR TRAINING?

We opened the first Barre studio in Australia, and we've continue to grow our business with an incredible, passionate team. We've been building an incredible training course for many years, and it's now online. Our reputation is based on the quality of our graduates.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET QUALIFIED?

The Barre Body Online Teacher Training course is completely self-paced, so you can take it at whatever speed works best for you. If you sped through the content, you could watch it all in about a week. Then you would need to complete your observation hours and practice teaching hours as well as review the content to learn the repertoire. You would then have to film and submit your assessment. Most people take 3-6 months to complete the course, but you can do it in a month or so if you are super keen.

WHAT IF I'VE NEVER TAUGHT BEFORE?

That's perfectly fine! We've had people from all walks of life wanting to become teachers. If you have no experience at all, you can absolutely do this training.

CAN I DO MY OBSERVATION HOURS ONLINE?

Yes. Normally we would ask that you do your hours in studio, but right now, around the world, studios are closed! We have a fabulous studio, Barre Body Online, where you can do this.

WHAT DOES THE ASSESSMENT INVOLVE?

Once you have completed all the modules, as well as 10 practice teaching hours, 20 class participation and 20 class observation hours, you must submit a video of you teaching a full 50-60 minute barre class. This will be assessed by our team of teacher trainers. The course is designed to prepare you to pass with flying colours and you can't fail, though we may ask you to resubmit your assessment if it doesn’t meet the criteria.

WHAT SUPPORT WILL I RECEIVE FROM BARRE BODY ALONG THE WAY?

Yes, of course. You have access to our facebook community as well as an expert trainer on hand to answer any question you may have. You can email us or you can simply comment at the bottom of a lecture and a master trainer will reply to your question or comment within a day or two (and often sooner).

CAN YOU GIVE ME A QUICK OVERVIEW OF THE COURSE STRUCTURE, PLEASE?

Your training consists of three key elements. These are knowledge acquisition (7 days in studio or our online content), skill development (20 hours of classes and 20 hours observations) and capability and confidence building (10 hours practice teaching plus assessment).

HOW DOES THE PRICING WORK?

We are a studio business that has a deep connection to, and loves and cares about instructors. We work with our own instructors in real life studio situations every single day to help them perform in our own beautiful studios across Australia. That’s why our graduates are the best instructors in the business ... Because we practice what we teach. And what we preach. Our business thrives because of the quality of our wonderful instructors so it’s important to us that future instructors (that's you!) have the best training possible at the most accessible price possible.
When you click through to the details of each course, you will see a price for each course. It's worth noting that in addition to this price, you will need a membership at a studio or online platform, so you have somewhere to conduct your professional development hours. We don’t include a membership in our pricing (as a passionate fitness lover, we assume you may already have a membership somewhere near you where you can do your professional development hours ... And we don't want you paying twice!).
