Ballet Bars and Wood or Metal Ballet Bar Brackets

FAQ |

Our portable and wall mounted ballet bars are Made in the USA! CWF Flooring, Inc. offers four species of wood bars: Poplar, Ash, Red Oak and Maple. All ballet bars are kiln-dried before cutting to insure a precision cut then turned for accurate roundness. Ballet bars are finally machine sanded, wood ends are slightly beveled and lastly spot sanded by hand.

We produce high quality wood ballet bars for dance and the bar method training at affordable prices. Due to its superior tensile strength, Ash, Red Oak or Maple wood is recommended for bar method training. The wood bars are not stained or varnished, except for the children's ballet bars which are stained with non-toxic Min Wax™ with color options: Red, Blue, Yellow and Green.

The Cartwheel Factory recommends that the buyer does not use varnish to preserve the wood bar. The reason for this is that this may cause the ballet bar to become slippery. Hand sweat needs to be absorbed into the bar to enhance grip security for the ballet dancer or for ballet bar method training exercises.

Which Wood Ballet Bar is Best?

Before deciding on the type of wood ballerina bar please study the below "Wood Specifications For Ballet Bars." As stated below the maple wood bars are the strongest of all four wood species, as well the most rigid and expensive. For schools where supervision is less than private dance studios we suggest the Ash wood because it is the second strongest of the four woods and can withstand the potential abuse from non-supervised students. Ash, Red Oak or Maple ballet bars are recommended for ballet fitness classes, bar fitness and The Bar Method training. Poplar wood is the most flexible and lightest but has moderate strength. Therefore Poplar wood is common for home use.

A Ballet Bar that easily disassembles to store or travel without issue. A mobile Bar, aka, The Free Standing Ballet Bar, can travel with dancers, potentially for warming up back stage (no dancer enjoys the awkward nature of using the back of a chair to warm up away from studio.) Toleration of clutter should be considered when storing tools of dance. Dance is an Art, and clutter does inhibit the creative process for the more sensitive Dancer.

Ballet Wood Bar Only


Red Oak, Maple & Poplar wood barre options are available. Dancing, primitive nature relies on stability and balance. When dancing at Barre the stability of the Bar can help or hinder practice. This often decided by construction and wood species. With less expensive -inferior models flooding the market it’s easy to get a less expensive Bar. This is a costly mistake for many Studio owners not only by cost of injury but in multiple purchases of the same Bar. An alternative to this repetition is to buy a made in the USA high quality bar the first time. A quality bar will last, even in the most extreme use, decades not seasons. An investment in the quality keeps dancing safe and profitable.

Ballet Bar Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)



1. Which type of wood bar is best?
This is a question of personal preference. The poplar wood, while being slightly softer, is also 1/8” thicker to compensate. The red oak and maple are both tougher woods, Red oak being the heaviest of the three. Ash wood is often used to produce baseball bats and bar method training due to its strength; and is the strongest of the lower priced bars. Wood Options & Wood Specifications For Ballet Bars

2. What are the “true” colors of these woods?
Poplar wood is the least consistent of our wood varieties. While for the most part it is a light, tan color, there are inconsistencies in the grain which cause parts to be darker, or green in color. Red Oak is, true to its name, a red wood. While its shade is more consistent than the other two types of wood, it is the grainiest of all three as well. Maple ballet bars have a similar light, tan color to poplar, with more consistency in shade, and fewer grains. Ash is a beautiful wood and has wider rustic mild grains.

3. Do I need to hire an installer to put these ballet bars up?
Not in most cases. While we recommend that wall-mounted bars be screwed into wall studs or better yet, a wall mounted wood back-board, we also provide instructions for self-installation. Each case is different of course, so be sure to know what you need before installation. Call us if you have any questions: 1-661-273-8700 or 1-661-273-8701
You Tube installation instructions for the wall mounted bars and instructions for the portable ballet bars.

4. Can you cut the wood ballet bars to custom lengths?
Unfortunately, due to the nature of our stock and manufacturing process, only 4’, 6’, 8’, 10’, 14’, and 16’ bars are available. However, the bars do have a wood over-hang of 8, 12, 16 or 20 inches so, yes, the buyer can cut the bar to one's specifications without hindering the bar brackets.

5. The web site is not allowing me to purchase a 10’, 14’, or 16’ ballet bars online. Why is this?
Bars larger than 8’ long cannot be shipped by UPS ground, and must be transported by freight truck. To place an order for these bars, you will need to contact us for an estimate at (661) 273-8700. 4’, 6’ and 8’ wall mounted bars are provided with FREE shipping.

6. We are a dance studio/contractor, are you able to provide us with a special price?
Unfortunately, we cannot provide a special price for studios or contractors, but we are able to provide larger discounts for larger orders, depending upon your needs.

7. Will the color from the stained poplar ballet bars rub off on bare skin?
No, the color used to stain the bars is fully cured and will not rub off on skin or clothes. By the way, white fixed metal ballet bar brackets look really great with color wood bars.

8. Where can I fine online ballet classes?
We do not offer ballet classes, sorry. Perhaps you can look for online ballet class at: www.OnlineBalletClass.Com


9. Can we use the ballet bars for barre workouts, aka. ballet fitness / Bar Method?
Yes, the bars are designed for ballet and bar method training. It is recommended that the end user acquire an extra bracket(s) for added security. To add extra ballet bar brackets drill an extra holes in the ballet bar to accommodate the extra bracket(s): First drill a hole 7/8" deep with a 3/8" drill bit. Then in the same hole use a 5/16" drill bit and drill 5/8". The hole is now a total of 1-1/2" deep. Further instructions are available at: www.cartwheelfactory.com/pdf/ballet-bars-instructions.pdf
For ballet bar fitness information or Bar Method workout videos please visit Ellie Kemper or visit: Barre Physique of Manhattan Beach , California for barre fitness classes.

10.How do you clean the wood bars?
Use a fine steel wool. You may want to use a mask so you don't breath in the wood dust. Use a damp cloth to remove excess wood dust from the bar. Then vacuum the area so dust will not be scattered in your dance room/dance studio. It is recommended that dance students keep their hands clean before dancing or before dance class starts. For health reasons, we recommend that students wash their hands before and after dance class. Ballet Bar brackets can be wiped clean with a spray cleaner.

11. I'm undecided to purchase the fixed ballet brackets or adjustable brackets?
*If it's for adults only we recommended the fixed ballet bar brackets. If the program or your dance studio caters to both kids and adults, we recommend the adjustable ballet bar brackets. *


12. We have a ballet school in San Francisco, California. In the past we have had metal ballet bars. Hope you can be objective here but, what are the advantages/ disadvantages/ of wood bars -Vs- aluminum bars? Metal ballet barres are cold to touch and are in fact slippery when the hands become sweaty. Wood ballet bars, like a gymnastic bar, will absorb wetness from the palms. If the surface can't absorb sweat then the bar will remain slippery. Metal ballet barres are stronger but do not have the flexibility of wood bars. This flexibility provide a anti-stress on joints, especially on the ballet bar method training.
