Sturdy, graceful, but tall.
These work great and look great -- the construction is sturdy but neither clunky nor fussy. My only complaint is that they are very tall. I am a 6' tall man, and the top barre is too tall for me to use for class -- I might use it to stretch, but it's too high for most (female) ballet students. If the whole thing was 4 - 6" shorter, I think they'd be more useful in a typical ballet studio, where young children could use the lower barre and everyone else could use the taller barre. Still, very nice stanchions and a great price.
With the double barres it allows for users of all heights. We have set the heights of the barres to the typical height of Ballet Studios across the world. Should you need something shorter, we can make them shorter as we are the manufacturer. Please just let us know as we would be glad to help!
