Have the Urge to Put on the Mic?

BLOG - Teacher Training

Calling all aspiring barre tenders!

BBS will be holding an in-studio Level I&II instructor training workshop April 22 & 23, 2017. Not sure if you want to take the leap into teaching? Have more questions? You’ve come to the right place!

Level I is a foundation level training that is also geared to help you to take your own personal commitment to the next level. During day one you will learn the BBS method and how to turn that into a kick butt class either as an instructor or participant. Throughout the session we will also focus on form, anatomy, and how to increase your mind-body connection.

Level II focuses on how to become a strong fitness leader by perfecting your teaching skills. Throughout day two we will discuss different teaching styles, what it takes to be an effective fitness leader, using music effectively in your classes, and how to properly cue, sequence and transition to ensure your flow from start to finish.

Please note that BBS will be hiring only 1-2 instructors at this time, so participating in the training does not guarantee a position.
