Is barre3 like the Bar Method?


Barre3 and the bar method have many similarities but also differences. Both are an hour long workout that targets the entire body and both are ballet based programs. The barre 3 method differs in that barre3 works from a neutral spine while the Bar Method works from a tucked-in pelvis. Also, barre3 uses cork floors and the Bar Method works on carpet.

There are definitely similarities, and endless differences. Both offer efficient one-hour workouts that target the entire body. barre3 works in a neutral spine, while the Bar Method works in a tucked pelvis throughout class. barre3 studio floors are cork, where the Bar Method works on carpet. These are two basic differences.

If you think of yoga, and how it has proliferated and segmented over the years, that is a good analogy to what is happening in the barre space. Currently, we all share the commonality of using the ballet barre, but how we use it, along with many other elements of the class, differs. It is definitely worth trying lots of different concepts to see what works best for you!
