5 Portable Ballet Barres You Can Take Anywhere

The fusion of ballet, pilates, dance, and yoga makes barre classes a great workout for people of all ages. While most of barre is isometric movements and static stretching, it’s best practiced with one thing: a barre.

And like with any sport or activity, the best results in barre come from practicing not only in class, but outside of class too. That’s why we’ve put together this list of portable ballet barres that you can take anywhere– so your students can practice at home or wherever they’d like to bring their barre!
