ZENA ROMMETT FLOOR-BARRE FOUNDATION, FOUNDED 1968 NYC
I was always trained with a Floor-Barre® class before each ballet class, so growing up as a dancer, I always had the two together. I never thought much of it or realized how greatly it helped my ballet, until my teacher, Marie De La Palme was gone and I was unable to take Floor-Barre® classes. As a teacher,
it became so clear in my mind how important this method is. At the certification program, the movements were refreshingly familiar. I was able to find my own strength as a teacher, and best of all, the program helped streamline the vocabulary so that I can teach Floor-Barre® effectively. Merci bien.
