Do you want the ballet bar for private use at home or should it be installed in the studio? Depending on this we recommend:In the studio
For children it is recommended to attach the ballet bar to approx. 87cm, which means that the upper edge of the bar is at this height. For adults a height of approx. 110 - 120cm is practicable. If a double bar is preferred for adults, the lower bar should be at a height of approx. 80 - 90 cm.Private use
At home it makes sense to adjust the ballet bar to your own size. The easiest way to do this is to use the height of your elbow as a guide. But you can check where your hands are in the second position and decrease this height. Basically, the ballet bar should be placed between your hips and waist.
Always make sure that the bar is long enough and that you have enough space to do your exercises optimally.
Our ballet bars are all painted and therefore very resistant to contamination. However, if you have an unattractive scratch in the bar, we recommend that you remove the ballet bar, sand the damaged area and then paint the area over a large area. Use either spray paint or liquid paint, which you distribute evenly with a clean cloth on the spot and the surrounding area. You can also contact us and we will help you in an advisory capacity.
You can simply clean and polish the brackets with a dry cloth for grease stains, for example.
We recommend our assembly video, which you can find here.
Make sure you have enough space in the room to do your exercises. This does not only concern how deep the bar may reach into the room, but also the length to practice cleanly. If you mainly want to train your body posture or if you prefer exercises where you place your hands on the ballet pole, then all ballet poles we offer are suitable for you. Even children often don't need so much space from bar to wall, so they can comfortably do all the exercises on all bars. Ballet studios and trainees, who are already a little bigger, should reach for the ballet poles, which have a minimum distance to the wall of 150mm, in order to be able to place their foot optimally on the pole. To test which pole is right for you, you can take a handrail in your staircase and see if you bump against the wall when you put your foot on the pole. If this is the case, take the ballet pole holders from 150mm wall distance.
Take the length of the mirror and add another 15 - 20cm per side. When ordering, please tell us that you have a mirror and tell us its width. Then we can adjust the bores on the ballet bars so that you can attach the ballet bar holders optimally next to the mirror.
