Barbara Dawson has combined the Floor Barre technique of Boris Kniaseff (popular in the dance centres of Paris) with the more modern trend of Barre workouts sweeping the globe at the moment. The 60 min class combines floor work (using the floor for support and alignment), progressing to the 'barre' - challenging core strength, balance and sculpting the lower body. The class finishes with stretches and a cool down. Alignment, posture, elegance and grace of movement are all key elements to this class.
