David Lucas and his wife, Lissette Salgado, were dancers with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Company. While on tour, they noticed that facilities for dancer warm-up activities were very limited in the venues in which they performed. From this experience came the idea for a niche market item – a strong light-weight portable ballet barre. As a result, on their return to Winnipeg, David, along with his father, John Lucas, developed the PortaBarre™, which has since been extremely well received by all the professional companies and dancers worldwide.
In the years since the introduction of the PortaBarre™ EnPointe has launched many high-quality dance products for various markets.
All of our products have many applications such as dance studios, homes, yoga and pilates studios, physiotherapy clinics, recreational centers and educational facilities with dance programs.”
