“I try to start my day with a chapter of the Bible and Floor-BarreTM. As therapy I had to take Floor-BarreTM from a marvelous woman, Zena Rommett. I relearned how to work correctly. Everything became aligned and adjusted. I regained a very correct way of moving. Zena got me back on my feet again. My injury was a blessing in disguise to find Zena. Dancers should come to her early in their training so they can learn to work correctly all the time.”
Linda Celete Sims, Principal Dancer, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater
T E S T I M O N I A L S
Alvin Ailey dancer, Linda Celeste Sims begins every day with 20 minutes of a Zena Rommett Floor-BarreTM DVD. Sim says, "It helps me build flexibility and strength."
“Based on ballet,
Floor-BarreTM creates long, exquisite lines.
Every ice skater should take Floor-Barre®".
“Zena’s videos are fantastic.
Dancers should eat them up!”
Dr. Richard Bachrach
“The Zena Rommett Floor-BarreTM is
a unique opportunity to modify those
maladaptive problems which may
be at the root of an injury".
“There is not a dancer I know who will not acknowledge the freedom they have gained after a brief study of this Technique. Based on the simple truth of the anatomy, the Zena Rommett Floor-BarreTM is in perfect harmony with the physical expectations of
ballet or modern dance.”
"Zena’s Technique is all about alignment, correct muscle usage,
and strengthening joints. When the body is in alignment everything a performer does is better. I have never been in a class before, ever, in which my mind and body become quiet. When you are centered properly, everything becomes easy and correct. Your entire feeling about yourself changes and your mind gets clearer too. Everyone and anyone would benefit from Floor-BarreTM. It is safe!”
ORIGINATOR OF FLOOR-BARRETM
“Zena’s Floor-BarreTM Technique is good for the dancing, but it is also good for the all-round entertainer: it improves acting, singing and the direct communication with the audience.In fact I was dancing better than ever before. The Technique works! It’s a miracle!”
