The International Ballet Barre Fitness Association (IBBFA) was founded in 2013 by a team of professionals in the Dance, Fitness and Medical fields. IBBFA recognized a need for standardized metrics for Barre workouts and instructors around the world. Its mission is to educate Barre Instructors and ensure that their participants experience a safe, high quality and thoughtful class every time. Though Barre has its roots through many different sources, the founders of the IBBFA have collaborated their more than 100 years of combined experience to ensure that every exercise, term and cue used in a Barre Workout is accurate and anatomically sound. Instructors that have been certified through IBBFA are sought after as being experts in their area and set the Gold standard for Barre. There are many training programs, methods and styles that emulate one instructor or founder’s philosophy, but IBBFA certified instructors have gone through extensive, well rounded training that understands every approach to Barre Fitness.
We urge you to take the next step in demonstrating your proficiency as a Barre Instructor by obtaining the IBBFA Barre Certification.
