“Michelle delivered a well rounded Informational teacher training for all levels of barre instructors.  The course provided a nicely bound manual with easy to follow pictures and descriptions of each position.  The manual presented several ways to layer in props to take the basic move to the next level.  Class included a teacher led class that incorporated the structure of how to teach a barre class.  Musicality, modifications and safety was also covered.  Michelle was pleasant, engaging and inclusive of all levels in class.  As a person who had a barre background teaching classes already, I still came away with new gained knowledge.  I highly recommend Barre Variations teacher training and the online videos for continued education.”
