ZENA ROMMETT FLOOR-BARRE FOUNDATION, FOUNDED 1968 NYC

Zena Rommet Floor-Barre® Technique® was my doorway back into the incredible world of dance, following a break from my professional dance career. The more I experienced the technique through the precious Floor-Barre® mentors, the more my desire for knowledge and well-being grew and for me to become the one to teach Floor-Barre®. The purity of the technique, the work of lengthening, elevation and projection, the essential deep concentration and connection of the body, mind and soul, allows us to reach a deep consciousness and creates a new perception of the body, physical and mental balance. It's extraordinary how, “just” lying on the floor, your body can change and improve; and you perfectly feel it when you stand! It's a big and deep change of perspective: you look at the sky, that becomes the place you tend to. By teaching I deeply hope to encourage people starting this wonderful and challenging path to the discovery of our depths self, both mental and physical, always firmly connected. I consider it a challenge but above all a great privilege to be part of the Zena Rommet family and to be able to continue this precious heritage of knowledge and beauty in return.
