Power-Barre was developed to help dancers become more aware of and strengthen the specific muscles needed to achieve a high level of proper dance technique. The muscles that create the “Dancers Esthetic” are uniquely important to the sport and art of Dance. These muscles are often hard to identify let alone strengthen. Power-Barre uses a specific set of tools* to help isolate these muscles and focus on correct body placement.
Miss Ingrid developed Power-Barre as a way to keep up with the needs of today’s dancer. She has spent the last 50 years as a professional dancer/choreographer/teacher. In that time, she has seen the dance world become more aggressive and competitive than ever. Ingrid developed a unique understanding of foundational Dance technique and more importantly, how to teach it and teach it quickly.
In today’s rush to achieve, Power-Barre can help enhance the process by teaching a more direct understanding of dance technique while developing the correct muscles to achieve it. Dancers who sign up for the class will also need to purchase the Power-Barre signature items. The class is based on these items but as a parent I am most excited that my dancer will have an opportunity to apply what she learned in class at home on her own time since she will have all the tools necessary to do so!
