Hybird Class ~ All levels welcome!

weekly class at BALLET ACADEMY EAST
1651 Third Avenue, 3rd floor New York, NY 10128
Created by Boris Kniaseff in 1953 as a way to cope with the absence of barres in his studio. He took the ballet barre exercises and adapted them to be executed on the floor. You will perform ballet movements sitting and laying on back, stomach and sometimes on the side.
Key benefit of Floor Barre:
Finding proper placement - Engage core stability - Improve turnout - Building strength for extensions - Increase range of motion - Improve mobility and flexibility - Strong supporting leg - Enhance coordination
Floor barre is also one of the best choices for injured dancers who need to avoid weight bearing exercises, but want to stay in shape during recovery.
