"I thought I was prepared to teach until I took this training. There's no other barre teacher training like it!"

It's not easy to find quality barre teacher training.


This training is for you if:

You have a family or a full-time job that makes committing to an in-person barre training impossible.

You’ve attended other barre trainings that rushed through a skimpy curriculum in one weekend.

You’ve been waiting for years for a live barre training to come to your city, but it never does.

You’ve looked into other trainings, but questioned the legitimacy of their instructors or their programs.

You want to make a full-time income as a barre teacher and need a training that will actually help you get hired.

This isn’t for you if you’re looking for a one-day workshop, a dancy barre routine with cardio moves, or a fun weekend hobby. This course teaches only authentic barre, based around Lotte Berk’s original techniques, with a focus on creating safe, engaging and effective classes and the business of working professionally as a barre instructor.


Barre Guild Academy's® Barre Teacher Training includes:


More than 100 instructional videos on specific barre exercises


Video instruction on adjustments, injury and pregnancy modifications


132 page instructional manual
+ handouts and worksheets


Private Facebook support community

Live Q&As with the Barre Guild® team

Final certification exam


Once you sign up, you’ll be able to start on the course right away, and you'll have immediate access to our private Facebook group, where you can start getting to know your fellow students!

The course is designed to take eight weeks, but it’s self-paced so you can go as fast or slow as you’d like!

"If Lotte or I haven’t trained those teaching, the classes lack that essential element of authenticity and knowledge."

— Esther Fairfax, daughter of Lotte Berk, creator of Barre


I'm Andrea Isabelle Lucas, the founder of Barre & Soul® studios and Barre Guild Academy®.

I have over a decade of experience with barre and the Lotte Berk tradition.

I've met far too many "barre teachers" who've been duped by faux training programs that teach yoga and cardio moves, add some weights and call it barre.

My team and I were determined to build the most comprehensive and authentic barre teacher curriculum possible, so we headed back to the source — to Esther Fairfax in England, the daughter of Lotte Berk, creator of barre, and the only person in the world qualified to certify other teachers in Lotte's true, pure, original barre methods.

After training with Esther and becoming certified in Lotte Berk's original barre training methods, we returned home and hunkered down to combine this with our own elite teacher training methodology and our experience in the business of barre.

We're real people just like you — I'm a mom with two kids and a crazy busy schedule. So we wanted to make sure that our teacher training was not just thorough and comprehensive, but also accessible to people who have jobs and lives and can't just drop everything to hoof it into the studio everyday for an in-person training program.


This is the result — the most authentic and comprehensive online barre teacher training program that has ever been made available to the public!
