    I don't see all of my replies to you, but I so appreciate everyone's feedback. Based on your experiences, I will keep searching. I wondered if maybe there was some documented or even anecdotal success out there of how bars can be taught with no shaping or spotting.

    Yes. I have exactly your concerns. The other options are few and far between, but I think I need to investigate further. Might just have to drive more. Thank you :)

    This is very interesting, since you've experienced both types. The lack of progress and poor technique learned on bars is what worries me. Thank you for your insight.

    Thank you for your input. This is my sense as well, but I worried that I'm being too protective.

    Hi there. Thank you so much for your honest feedback. I will PM you the area. The concerns you mention are exactly my concerns. It was so odd to be in a gym where the girls are doing uneven bars with no one around. ?? No one working with them except to give corrections from the sideline.
