Barre a Terre/Floor Barre classes. Based on the principles of classical ballet, Floor Barre is a system designed to work for bodies of all ages, dancers and people with dance training.
Who the classes are for:
Dancers, dance students and dance teachers at Intermediate level
The title Barre a Terre is a special technique on the floor. It is actually inspired by the exercise of the Ballet Barre on standing feet, the first part of the ballet class. The exercises will be done on the back, stomach, and also on the side. They could start in sitting position first continue on the stomach and back.
I am teaching Boris Kniaseff based technique with influence of ballet moves. In this Barre a Terre, the exercises are almost in the same order as a normal ballet class. The technique gives you coordination with arms and legs. It sculpts your legs with fine muscle in a healthy way. It strengthens your core to re-establish the lower and the upper part of the body. Barre a Terre technique not only sculpt and refine the body, it is a holistic approach to center the mind and body.
Useful tips: Wear socks, which make sliding the feet on the floor easier. Tights or yoga type pants are also helpful to protect the skin and allow for easier sliding on the floor.
