What’s a floor barre?. . .Yes, you do it lying on the floor BUT it’s an intense workout, demanding full concentration on the exercises and can actually allow for better alignment and muscle work  and more sensitivity than when you are vertical in space. . .Yes, it’s called a ‘barre’ but it’s not just about ballet.  You will work through a variety of movement exercises focusing on the central body core as the original life source, gaining enhanced body control, strength, fluidity and suppleness for improved alignment and maximum joint and limb flexibility.

Rhonda Moore’s floor barre class stems from her 30 years of developing special breathing exercises for dancers, speakers, actors & vocal artists.  Her focus on the Effort\Shape theories of Laban help to clarify, mentally and visually, the ideas behind practical application. This permits each person to reach his or her full potential while elaborating the personal imagery necessary to truly master his/her physical and mental self.  If you have a yoga/pilates mat (or good towel), bring it.  The Dance Program will provide mats for anyone who does not have one.

Although having some dance vocabulary under your belt would be useful, this is a good workout that is suitable for dancers, actors, movers of all sorts who feel they are coming into the workshop in reasonably good physical shape.
