Build a PVC Ballet Barre
Ballet Barre workouts are a great way to strengthen your body, and you don’t need expensive ballet lessons to do it! Just build your own ballet bar using Furniture Grade PVC pipe and fittings.
Ballet Barre work shapes the body by:
- Strengthening muscles in the feet and legs
- Increasing flexibility
- Increasing balance
- Improving posture
- Tightening core muscles
Whether you’re a dancer warming up, or a senior looking to improve posture, the stationary handrails provide stability while moving between various positions.
The two parallel handrails in this free-standing structure are designed to accommodate people of different heights. Additionally, the PVC Ballet Barre is portable, lightweight, and easy to build.
Construction of the FORMUFIT PVC Ballet Barre Plan uses approximately 20-feet of 1-1/4 in. Schedule 40 PVC pipe, with six (6) PVC 90 Degree Elbows and four (4) PVC Tees. Although it was designed using standard glossy white pipe and fittings, it can also be build with color PVC fittings to make it more unique.
