Ballet is quickly becoming a very popular form of exercise and therapy for people all over the world. For those that own or manage a ballet studio, one of the most important pieces of equipment to buy is a ballet barre. When looking for ballet barres, the two most common options are wall-mounted barres and free-standing barres. While both options can provide you with great support and be very functional, there are many advantages of a freestanding ballet barre that can make it the better option for your studio.
One of the main advantages of a freestanding ballet barre is that it is portable. If you own your own studio, you will likely want to have a variety of different types of classes. This means that you may need to change the way that your equipment is organized in the studio. If you choose a wall-mounted ballet barre, you will have a much harder time moving it between classes.
The portability of the ballet barres is especially important if you plan on operating multiple studios. The freestanding ballet barre can be easily broken down to a shape and size that will allow it to fit into your vehicle.
Another benefit of using a ballet barre that is freestanding is that two people can use it at once. With a wall-mounted ballet barre, you will only be able to have a user stand on one side of it. With a freestanding ballet barre, you can have people located on both sides of the barre. This immediately cuts the amount of barres you need to buy in half or it could allow you to double your capacity per class.
