ZENA ROMMETT FLOOR-BARRE FOUNDATION, FOUNDED 1968 NYC
Dancer, Melinda Jackson
I have studied Floor-Barre® since 1984, and I have taken the Certification Course several times. Floor-Barre® is a mind-body method that allows a person to naturally re-align the body and work on core strength muscles. In addition lengthening of the entire body: legs and torso, occurs. Just the whole mind-body connection and allowing people to stop the "chatter" in their mind to focus on their bodies is certainly helpful. Once you can understand what is going with yourself, you have the ability to fix or change it for the better. I noticed immediately in my other "dance" classes (ballet, modern or jazz) that I could find my "center" more.
