The class is based on the Jooss-Leeder technique, developed by Hans Züllig and Jean Cébron, with a contemporary barre at the barre followed by a middle.

The precise consciousness of one’s body in the space and its dynamics are the ground of this approach. The precise consciousness of one’s body in the space and its dynamics are the ground of this approach. The technical work at the barre allows the upper side of the body and the arms to flow by being well aware of the weight, the swing, the possible oppositions and dissociations. The center is in the continuity of the barre. It uses both the movement quality and sensations, the objective being to master sensations for a better precision and understanding of movement.
