Andrea Isabelle Lucas, founder of Barre Guild Academy®, breaks down how to design a complete, effective barre class that gets real results in The Barre Teacher Startup Kit.


A real barre class is structured to provide an amazing, efficient, complete workout in just an hour. A well-designed barre class can burn hundreds of calories, improve posture, balance, and mind-body connection for your students.

But how do you actually design a class that gets those results?


This Barre Teacher Startup Kit is for you if:

You attended a barre class and you want to start teaching, but you’re not sure that you’re ready to jump into a full barre teacher training program.

You attended a barre training that rushed through a bare-bones curriculum in one weekend and left you feeling unprepared to actually plan and teach your first class.

You attended a barre training that taught a dancy or cardio-heavy version of barre, but you want to teach a more authentic barre class based on the Lotte Berk tradition.

You’re already teaching barre, but you’re having trouble timing your classes or getting through transitions quickly, and you’re always running late.

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