For the uninitiated, barre is a stationary handrail that provides support for people during various types of exercises. Barres are used extensively in ballet training and warm-up exercises, where such exercises are commonly referred to as barre work. In a ballet class, barre may also refer to the part of the class that involves barre work, Barres are also used for warm-up exercises in other types of dance, as well as in general fitness programs, according to wikipedia.
