Barre Au Sol
As the name suggests, “barre au sol” technique means “floor barre” – the part of classical dance which is practised on the floor. Through creating anti-gravity, the spine is strengthened and stretched instead of being overloaded. The muscle groups necessary in classical dance and needed for the external hip rotation (colloquially called the “turnout” in ballet) are developed. A lesson of barre au sol is constructed in a way allowing the dancer’s body acquire desired lines, especially feet (thanks to unweighting exercises done very slowly, the instep and strength of ankle joint are very well developed), stomach, tights, bottoms and hips. The exercises help to improve the flexibility and increased muscle strength of legs and body which results in better adagio.
