Are there pre-requisites to take the BarreBeats training course?
No! However it helps if you have participated in BarreBeats classes or if you have
experience within ballet/barre and group fitness classes.
You will be taught everything you need to know to create your own classes using music
that you love and according to the needs and goals of your clients.
It is your responsibility to ensure you have the necessary insurance cover and knowledge
to teach your classes safely.
What happens after the training course?
Purchase your BarreBeats license (see below), prepare your class and begin teaching
your BarreBeats classes as soon as you feel ready. Naomi is available to provide
ongoing support for all licensed BarreBeats instructors.
Is there a license or franchise fee to pay?
There is a lifetime license fee to pay of just £150 upon completion of your
training. This license fee will allow you to use the BarreBeats name and logos
as well as give you access to exclusive support from Naomi. You will be able to submit your classes for listing on this website.
There are NO ongoing fees and there is no franchise fee.
Is this a pre-choreographed program?
No, this is not pre-choreographed and you are free to use your own creativity! You will have all the tools you need to create continually evolving and challenging classes for your customers with ease. You are able to choose your own music and are not bound to use any specific choreography or Naomi's music choices.
Will I receive a certificate?
Upon passing your online assessment you will receive a certificate of completion.
I don't know whether to take the online option of blended learning. Which would you suggest?
There are two options to complete your BarreBeats training:
1. Self-directed, fully online learning which gives you access to the manual and online videos. You should choose this option if you are able to motivate yourself through self-study and if you have ballet knowledge. It is not advisable to select this option if you have no ballet knowledge, do not teach barre classes or have never taught group fitness to music classes.
2. Blended learning consisting of the manual and online videos plus a one-day face-to-face training course with Naomi. You should choose this option if you want to ensure you have the best possible learning experience.
There are no training days near me. Will you be adding more?
All scheduled face-to-face training days are listed below.
I would encourage you to travel where possible and guarantee it will be worth it!
It is unlikely that I will be running training courses outside of the UK at this time but please feel free to contact me with any requests.
If the location really are impossible for you purchase the online only learning option and then if you would like to attend a face-to-face training day you can purchase that separately as and when a date comes up that you can get to.
