CORE BARRE - Smart Movement® Teacher Training

This 3-day course is the foundation course for CORE BARRE Instructor training and certification.

The CORE BARRE System of Smart Movement® is a group based exercise program that combines elements of Pilates mat, classical ballet, resistance training and active isolated stretching (AIS).


This course is designed to provide movement professionals with a firm base in the classical syllabus and biomechanics used in CORE BARRE classes. This course is for individuals who want to teach a solid execution of stabilization principles, movement concepts, ballet terminology and the complete knowledge of the Smart Movement® syllabus combined with guidelines for effective programming and simple hands on and verbal cuing.


Pilates/movement training and experience is highly recommended and group teaching experience a prerequisite.


Develop the skills needed to design and teach a barre class with the use of weighted balls of 1-2 pounds, a small stability ball, therabands and the ballet barre.  Learn the CORE BARRE concepts of stabilization, how to format a 55 minute class and teach the standard ballet barre and mat syllabus.  Learn effective and timely cues to safely challenge and motivate a class while promoting focus and precision for optimal strength and control. The course provides tools such as musical considerations, biomechanical concepts and ballet terminology to enable instructors to effectively teach an awareness and appreciation for beautiful, mindful and Smart Movement®.
