Floor Barre with Alison Crosby 5-6PM on July 19, 23 & 30
Developed by Zena Rommett, the world-renowned pioneer in injury prevention and rehabilitation for dancers, this class combines ballet with anatomical principles of alignment and kinetic usage. By lying on the floor, without the pressure of gravity, Floor-Barre® strengthens and properly corrects the placement of the pelvis, hips and back with your mind and body concentrated and working together. This revolutionary technique, which has had a steadily growing following for several decades, is based on the idea that without the pull of gravity (hence, lying on the floor) students are better able to learn movements and correct alignment.
