Ballet is an ephemeral dance, an art of profound grace and beauty. Most people, dancers or not, can appreciate the sheer strength and grit required to pursue dance on a professional level. It's not a secret: Dancers are tough in every way. Shouldn't a dancer's equipment be just as strong?
Ballet dancers of all ages can be very hard on their barres. Adult dancers frequently place a high percentage of their body weight onto the barre in somewhat precarious stretching positions, often with more than one dancer at a time. At times, a barre may not be as sturdy as one expects. It's clear that a sturdier barre goes a long way in aiding the dancer. Dancers have enough technique to think about without the distraction of a wobbly barre.
Have you ever been in class and witnessed a very young dancer hanging upside down from the barre, and worried that something disastrous would happen, for which you and your studio would ultimately be liable? Traditional wooden barres bolted into the wall are not at all designed to withstand repeated misuse such as this. Yet, kids will be kids. Wouldn't you rather rest assured that when that same student behaves in such a manner, they won't fall on their head due to a broken barre?
