My professional career on stage lasted 28 years, more than 20 years of which I was doing Floor Barre for to develop my dance abilities. I have also been teaching Floor Barre for many years. Regular practice of this parterre technique will help you to optimally maintain your ballet training, to be, let say, “in shape.”
I can say with all my confidence that Floor Barre will help keep your body healthy and lengthen your ballet career.
It is never too late to start practicing “the Floor Barre”, even being at the peak of your ballet career!
