ZENA ROMMETT FLOOR-BARRE® TECHNIQUE
Zena Rommett Floor-Barre® Technique is an amazing and valuable tool for anyone interested in dance or movement, be they professional dancers or non-professionals, and at all levels.
Floor-Barre® is a ballet based technique that works on alignment and placement principles. The technique facilitates a real sense of connection throughout the body. Practising Floor-Barre® strengthens the dancer, lengthens the muscles and naturally allows a new understanding of movement as transition; an holistic approach. Floor-Barre® is also a helpful technique for injured dancers going back into training and it helps prevent future injuries.
The technique was invented by Zena Rommett, a former ballet dancer who worked extensively on Broadway and in Europe. At the end of her career, when she started teaching herself, she was concerned with the lack of technique and placement amongst dancers she encountered. Out of her own keen sense of the importance of correct placement and technique, grew Floor-Barre®. Zena's technique, which she developed already in the 1950's, also made her a pioneer in injury prevention and rehabilitation. Soon dancers from every major dance company in New York and beyond - NYCB, ABT, Alvin Ailey, Joffrey Ballet etc - flocked to her studio to work with Zena and the technique, to amazing results.
What to expect from a Floor-Barre® class:
The class always starts in parallel. This is to ensure stability in the pelvis and for the student/dancer to work on engaging the muscles correctly from the beginning. This focus naturally prepares the body properly for the next step: outward rotation/turn out. The class then transitions into more movement, similarly to the exercises executed at a ballet barre, but on the floor. After the floor work, some exercises are performed standing up, at the barre or/and in the centre. This is to help the student transfer what they have learned on the floor into a standing position and into dance. The progression of the exercises and classes help the student/dancer to achieve their maximum potential, without at all straining the body.
