Have you been holding on to the thought of participating in a barre class? Are you skeptical about trying barre because you have heard a variety of things about ballet barre and you have no idea what to believe? Over the course of a few years, you have probably heard a variety of stories that have given you the wrong idea of what barre is or what it is expected to be.
I Have To Be A "Fame" Dancer
One of the things you may have heard about barre is that you need to be a dancer to be an active participant in the class. This is not true. Although barre was created by a dancer, this does not mean everyone who walks through the doors of a barre class is a dancer. There is no rule that states barre is an exclusive class for only people with a dance background.
If you are alive, you qualify to be a participant in a barre class. It does not matter if you think you have rhythm or not, your durability and flexibility will improve over time. You do not need to have dance moves like Debbie Allen or Misty Copeland because there is a good chance no one else in your class will have those types of moves either.
Barre Is Only For Women/Girls
The same way there is no rule that states you have to be a "Fame" dancer to participate in barre, there is no rule that states only a certain gender can participate. Women and men can all benefit from a barre class because of its ability to engage all of your muscles, even the muscles you did not know you had.
Barre can be used to stabilize your muscles and your mind in ways that you did not know it needed. Barre is also being used by athletes of all genders as part of their workout routine so it can improve their flexibility, improve their durability, and reduce their chances of being injured while on the court or on the field.
