A ballet barre is a piece of equipment used to encourage ballet dancers at The Next Step Dance Studio to elevate their technique.

Studio A, Studio 1 and, formerly, the Music Room, contain a pair of ballet barres.

History

As well as their normal use, ballet barres have also served other purposes:

  • When Luther Brown helps James, West, Eldon and Hunter with their small group routine for Nationals in Studio A, he has the boys carry out a self-control exercise that involves racing in slow-motion, for which he sets up a finish line consisting of two ballet barres with a long line of yellow CAUTION tape tied between them.[2]

Ballet barres are naturally present at La Ballet de la Reine when West and Chloe attend the audition for its production of The Nutcracker.[3]

Description

Nutcracker

West and Chloe practice at one of the original ballet barres in the Music Room.

The ballet barres in Studio A are black with silver joints on the corners at the top, where the central rail joins the main barre, and where the barre joins the feet, which are silver at the ends.

The ballet barres in Studio 1 are similar to those in Studio A, but are white with a pale brown central rail, have flat feet, and there are no joints on the corners at the top or where the central rail joins the main barre. [4]

Trivia

  • Black and silver are initially the uniform colours for a ballet barre.
