Traditionally, a ballet barre should be approximately waist height of the user.

However, the following statistics are very popular:

  • Single Barre Height*:    32” – 46” from floor (waist level)
  • Double Barre Height*:  32” – 34” lower barre; 44” – 46” from the floor for upper barre
  • Distance from Wall to Barre:
    • Inside = 7-1/4” (approx)
    • Outside = 9” (approx)

* “Barre height” is the distance (height) between the floor and the barre, or  more simply, how high your barre is off of the ground.
