STRENGTHENS MUSCLES AND JOINTS – Using the floor system, BK Floor Barre corrects placement, advances muscle strength & joint without the pressure of gravity.
TENSION RELEASED – A gentle and effective method that lengthens and strengthens muscle, releasing tension from neck and joints.
ALIGNMENT CORRECTED – It concentrates body alignment & improves the efficiency of muscles, allowing correction of bad structural habits.
REHABILITATES & PREVENTS INJURIES – It is an extremely safe, low impact programmeI traditionally adopted by professional ballet dancers during periods of injury
TONES ABDOMINAL, HIPS AND LEGS –Through a structured, progressive barre a terre programme, your body will naturally tone those important abdominal and hip areas.
Come to the next BK Floor Barre class and see why you should START a Floor Barre programme. Classes consist of 30 mins of floor work, followed by 60 mins Contemporary Choreography where you APPLY the BK Floor Barre techniques and methods learnt .
Kim has been teaching professional and students ballet for over 12 years and uses BK Floor Barre in his professional teaching. Kim’s approach is to correct individual alignment during class, explaining why common mistakes occur and spends time to work through exercises for injuries or painful joints. He strongly recommends that if you are an adult dancer and that you want to improve your turn out, increase your flexibility and strengthen your core, then barre a terre is an important step in achieving that for both an amateur and professional dancer.
Could you describe the BK Floor Barre techniques a little?
The technique was developed by combining Graham style floor exercises with the classical technique, but has become quite sophisticated, giving a complete workout of the classical repertoire of exercise, on the floor, focusing especially on placement. After that you continue with a normal barre and centre with enchainments and allegro.
I am teaching Boris Kniaseff based technique with influence of ballet moves. In this Floor Barre, the exercises are almost in the same order as a normal ballet class.The technique gives you coordination with arms and legs. It sculpts your legs with fine muscle in a healthy way. It strengthens your core to re-establish the lower and the upper part of the body. BK Floor Barre technique not only sculpt and refine the body, it is a holistic approach to center the mind and body.
Useful tips
Wear socks, which make sliding the feet on the floor easier. Tights or yoga type pants are also helpful to protect the skin and allow for easier sliding on the floor.
