How to Make a Barre Studio at Home

Leave ample room: While micro movements are everything in a barre workout, you've got to have space to move around. Make sure you set up your studio in a spot with lots of room for fluid movement.
Build your barre: You may consider investing in a portable ballet barre, but there are lots of ways to get creative with furniture you've already got in your home. Find a counter or grab a chair for a makeshift barre. Either will do the trick as a substitute for the real thing.
Roll out your mat: Bring your Pilates or yoga mat out whenever you're moving through a dance-inspired workout at home. Your mat gives your feet necessary traction when performing the barre routine, so you're not slipping and sliding all over your home's floor — or worse, rolling your ankle!
Keep reading for two more tips for creating a barre studio at home.
Grab some weights: Plenty of barre workouts employ the help of some light weights for intensified strength-training purposes. You might have eight or 10 pound weights in your home already, but be sure to grab a pair of small three-pound handheld weights that don't get in the way of your ability to perform.
