FAQs

Is Floor-Barre® appropriate for me if I have never studied ballet and dance before?

Yes! It is appropriate for absolute beginner adults.

Is Floor-Barre® appropriate for me if I have danced before, but not recently?

Yes! It is appropriate if you are returning to dance- whether it's been a few months or many years.

How does Floor-Barre® compare to a traditional ballet class?

Floor-Barre® takes the exact same alignment concepts from ballet. Instead of standing at a ballet barre, you are lying down, making it easier because you are working with gravity.  It facilitates an easier access to ballet steps, especially for adult beginners, and is safe and suited to healing injuries and chronic conditions.

Is this Floor-Barre® like other Barre methods?
No. Rommett Floor-Barre® is a lengthening alignment based practice.  It does not use isometric (repetition) exercises. It is an extremely gentle and meditative approach.

Do I need a lot of space in my home if I am taking an online version of the class?
No.  The class is designed for smaller spaces.  You will need an average size room (with ideally 8ft. x 8ft. of open area) in order to lie down.

What do I wear for classes and do I need any props?
Comfortable workout apparel is best.
Tank tops, t shirts, yoga pants or leggings are all appropriate.

Tighter leggings or yoga pants are strongly suggested, in order to see the alignment of the legs.
Socks should also be worn, so that you can slide the feet along the floor to activate certain muscles.
Ballet shoes are not worn.

Yoga mats are not required, however if your floor surface is hard, you may consider trying a mat since you will be lying down for the majority of the class.

Can I record the class?
No. We require that you do not record any portion of the class. They are solely intended for group practice under the direct supervision of the instructor in real time.​
