Dancer, Melinda Jackson
ZENA ROMMETT FLOOR-BARRE FOUNDATION, FOUNDED 1968 NYC
Zena Technique® is an amazing "facing the reality." It is impressive how body and body alinement is affected, not only by the personal training and dance technique, but also by the state of mind. Zena Rommett Floor Barre® is a training, a technique and a journey. But not only this, it is about purity and truth. And it is about facing ones body and emotions. It is impressive how, “just” by lying on the floor and being guided by a peaceful voice, we can know our body. I´m reflecting how in these certification days, the body is affected by the state of mind. In this sense I totally understand - maybe for the first time - how important, as a teacher, to be clear, centered and calm. And how, the teacher's voice and tone affects the muscles. Also thinking that by lying on the floor, the students is in a incredibly vulnerable position. One more reason why I am reminded how important it is to be positive, calm and nice. This is what I´ve been reflecting on in these days.
