Why not join one of the Torre Barre live Zoom classes? You can enjoy the class from the comfort of your own home and decide if it’s for you.

You can take classes without any equipment whatsoever, but it’s useful to have:

A chair or something sturdy to hold on to, this is your ballet barre
Two small equal weights, ideally around 1kg, you can use things you find around the house, such as tin cans or water bottles
A yoga mat to lie on for floorwork
Water to drink

It’s also good to use speakers or wireless headphones for Zoom calls, so you can turn the volume right up, clearly hear instructions and lose yourself in the music.
