Barre à Terre: In 2006, I began to systematically teach what I call Structural Barre à Terre. Thinking about what kind of complementary training dancers needed for strengthening, increasing flexibility and sensitivity, and educating their bodies, no matter their technique. My classes are for people who wish to explore and learn about the fundamentals of their bodies’ functionality, bring awareness to their movement and their dancing, learn to use their bodies in service of movement, and become receptive to changes.
On the floor, under the effect of gravity, you become aware of the conscious and unconscious uses of energy and musculature: You can isolate and explore the functions of different parts of the body and their proper use. It takes patience and consistency to achieve an honest and available body. Make the body available. The body is the means, not the end!
Actors, dancers, singers, musicians, painters – everybody can take my class. Although their reasons for taking my class may differ, they all have one reason in common: self-discovery.
