Barre Teacher Training

Led by Morgan Cowie

Mosaic Barre draws from principles from classical ballet, dance conditioning, yoga, pilates, functional movement and strength training to create unique and effective movement practice which can be modified for all bodies.

As a teacher, you will learn principles rather than memorizing sequences so you are able to create your own barre sequences which are fun, innovative and will bring your clients back again and again!

    • Modifications for particular injuries or stages (i.e. pregnancy)

Why Mosaic Barre?

Cross-Modalities: We bring the best of many modalities together to create intelligent classes that build strength, flexibility and fill in gaps from other movement practices in a fun and non-judgmental way.

Inclusive: You don’t need to have professional dance training or previous experience. We believe that anyone can learn how to practice and teach well with commitment.

Full Range of Motion: Students get stronger and more flexible, rather than just getting end-range movements to look ‘ripped’. Our focus is on moving better and our classes are intelligent and result-focused.

Principles Not Memorization: We will empower you to teach, rather than give you a script to memorize. You will be uniquely qualified to find your own voice and path and will have the tools to become an in-demand instructor!
