This high-energy four-hour workshop, developed by the Merrithew team, is a great opportunity for Instructors looking to bring music-inspired movement to their clients. Following the class template used in the Total Barre Foundation Course and with the same level of intensity, Instructors learn unique choreography to create a biomechanically well-balanced and fun Barre program. Incorporating light props such as the Flex-Band®, Mini Stability Ball and Toning Balls gives Instructors more flexibility for their clients in an hour-long, endurance-focused class.

A recommended play list of music is provided, as well as suggested beats per minute for each segment, so you can build on this and select your own music to create theme-based classes (e.g. disco, acid jazz, reggae, salsa, etc).
