(Custom Maple Wood Barre pricing is rounded up to the nearest foot)
Maple Barres are made of beautiful Hard, White Maple wood with a light shade. It is a solid hardwood that has the preferred silky smooth feel.
Since they are made of natural wood, grain and coloration may vary. Barres are unfinished, hand-sanded smooth and ready to use. They will all arrive beveled on both ends, so no sharp edges.
Wood is the Standard, Traditional Choice
Wood barres are the preferred and standard traditional choice in the professional ballet industry and barre fitness / exercise classes. Unlike metal or plastic barres, the natural product will absorb sweat (won’t get slippery) and provide slight flexibility. This slight flexibility in wood barres provide anti-stress on joints, especially on the ballet barre method training.
Choosing the Correct Barre Length
Is the dancer new to ballet and not sure which barre length to get? 4’ barres are commonly used for beginning children while 6’ barres are commonly used for beginning teens or adults. 8’ barres are the most popular and give more room for stretching. 8’ to 16’ barres give ample space for multiple people to use at the same time.
If you are unsure what length barres to use, we strongly recommend contacting your local Barre Fitness Studio and asking their specifications for that type of barre exercise / fitness class.
Customizing Your Barre Length
Custom Maple barre lengths are available up to 16′- or splice joint pins may be added to give the appearance of longer barres.
