The Barre Collective Barre Instructor Training Programme

Train with the original pioneer of Barre and Ballet fitness in the UK.

The Barre Collective Instructor Training Programme (endorsed and accredited by PD: Approval – the UK's independent, official Quality Assurer) is the most thorough course available for entry-level barre teacher teaching and is based on techniques that are tried, tested and used every day.

Developed over 10 years by our Founder, Vicki Anstey and Team GB Physiotherapist, Katherine Ready, our methodology is the most advanced in the industry, both in the UK and globally and our Instructors are amongst the most highly trained on the circuit.


With origins in the Lotte Berk Method and the New York City Ballet Workout, influences from yoga, pilates and classical ballet, plus a variety of strength and conditioning techniques, you will not find a more comprehensive route to becoming a world-class Barre Instructor.

Prerequisites for REPs members wishing to obtain CPD:

L2 ETM or L3 Pilates/Yoga/EMPD.

Prerequisites for non-REPs members:

Barre, PT, Pilates, Yoga or Dance qualification.

All candidates must complete a minimum of five Online Workouts via the On Demand library prior to attendance on the Training Workshop.


How does it work…?

You will attend a two-day workshop (16 hours) with us online and following that, be guided through a (maximum) three month period of practical evaluation – either at our studio or via a monthly video submission.

If you are quick to learn and demonstrate ability to teach proficiently sooner than that you could gain qualification over a far shorter period of time.

Upon receiving your certification, you will have absolute certainty that you’re able to deliver barre instruction to the highest standard possible. Our hands-on, thorough and supportive approach means that you are not left struggling with online ‘how to’ guides or left feeling apprehensive about whether your classes and teaching approach will translate to a profitable business down the line.


The Foundation course cost is £600. Spaces are limited to 10 people only. This cost includes all materials, access to our Online Workout Portal, one-to-one coaching with our Founder and senior-level Instructors.

Additional Advanced Module Short Courses in ‘Modifications for Pre and Postnatal Clients’ and ‘Barre for Rehab’ are also available.

Our next training sessions will take place in September 2021. Stay in touch to be notified of our next training dates.
