AntiGravity® AIRbarre is a fitness technique that transfers dance conditioning exercises at the ballet barre to the Harrison Hammock for the sake of developing strength, length and grace while realigning the body. Dance develops ideal bodylines through the toning and lengthening of muscles, while also developing balance and agility. Recently, new methods of ballet barre training have found their way into fitness studios as participants notice the many benefits of training physical grace. AntiGravity’s version, AIRbarre, challenges the body and mind beyond the vertical plane and up into the air!
“Dance classes always start at the barre with pliés. As a disciplined Broadway dancer and guest artist with the Metropolitan Opera Ballet for numerous years, this classical form of training has been deeply engrained into my psyche. Transferring much of the movements to a silk hammock that allows for 3d movement on multiple planes has been thrilling. The beautiful and talented Lorianne Major has helped me put together this latest AntiGravity technique with playful class designs that inspire movement. It is accessible to non-dancers, with the Harrison Hammock helping them find alignment, and also challenges accomplished dancers, giving them more airtime in jumps!”
