Alvas Poplar Barre – Standard Holes
Alvas Poplar Barre with Standard Holes is an attractive barre manufactured with pre-drilled holes, spaced according to Alvas standard specifications. Ideal for ballet use. Available in 6 standard lengths.
Poplar Barres are made of beautiful Tulip Tree Poplar wood with a light shade. It is a solid hardwood that has a smooth feel and is easy to stain (if preferred).
Since they are made of natural wood, grain and coloration may vary. All Poplar Standard Barres are hand-sanded smooth and ready to use. They will all arrive beveled on both ends, so no sharp edges.
Wood is the Standard, Traditional Choice
Wood barres are the preferred and standard traditional choice in the professional ballet industry. Unlike metal or plastic barres, the natural product will absorb sweat (won’t get slippery) and provide slight flexibility. This slight flexibility in wood barres provide anti-stress on joints, especially on the ballet barre method training. In ballet, barres are typically used for balance only so dancers learn to hold their own weight.
