ZENA ROMMETT FLOOR-BARRE FOUNDATION, FOUNDED 1968 NYC
Dancer, Melinda Jackson
I am writing on behalf of the magical Zena Rommett, who was instrumental in bringing my body back to life after a serious fall in rehearsal when I danced with the Joffrey Ballet. I had been told that I would never walk again, but with Zena’s wonderful Floor Barre, I was able to not only dance again, but have enjoyed a career as internationally recognized master ballet teacher, and ballet mistress to five ballet companies, including ABT. I am now the director of The ABT West Coast training facility at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Orange County California. Zena’s work is unparalleled and deserves recognition world wide.
I bless Zena and Floor Barre every day!
