It’s important that you choose the right type of equipment for your dance/barre studio. Things like glassless mirrors, dance flooring, and quality barres are a must and will allow you to perform dance routines and barre workouts with confidence. For dancers and athletes who want to include strength training exercises but aren’t interested in using traditional weights, a freestanding barre is an excellent option. Wall mounted barres are stationary but free up floor space for dancing and allow clutter free cleanup. Stretch bands and exercise balls are also excellent choices to include if you want to expand on your traditional barre workout routine. Glassless mirrors can be purchased as panels or roll-away mirrors and are shatterproof. They are lightweight, professional quality and can be used almost anywhere. They are used almost exclusively throughout the industry because they have a better image than glass mirrors.
You can choose from several professional quality barres for your home studio. Freestanding barres that are used for strength training and more strenuous workouts can be rolled to the side to open up your space for other types of dance. Traditional wall-mounted barres that are used for ballet and other types of dance are primarily used for balance and must be stationary. To have an effective barre workout, you need to have the highest quality equipment possible. This ensures that you are capable of putting 100% into your workout without fear of being injured or losing your balance.
Glassless mirrors, (both traditional panels and roll-away types) are essential, especially for individuals who dance professionally. The use of mirrors allows you to see your form and make adjustments to ensure you are performing at your peak. Glassless mirrors are a popular choice because they are affordable and provide all of the advantages of traditional glass mirrors without the risk of breakage. They are lightweight and easy to handle. They can be placed anywhere and are a great way to add a touch of authenticity to your at-home dance studio.
