From Stephane Dalle's website:
"Floor Barre is a special technique on the floor. It is actually inspired by the exercises at the barre on standing feet, the first part of a ballet class.The exercises will be done on the back, stomach, and sometimes on the side.They could start in sitting position first and then continue on the back...
The Boris Kniaseff technique is the only one deserving the title of «Floor Barre» as it is really inspired by the first part of a ballet class. I have tried all of the different techniques called Floor Barre, but most of them are inspired by Yoga, therapy exercise, and gymnastics. The only one, in my opinion, that deserves this title is the one devised by Boris Kniaseff. In this Floor Barre, the exercises are almost in the same order as a normal ballet class...
It is very well put together. It gives you arm and leg coordination, it sculpts your leg muscles in a healthy way, it strengthens your center to re-establish the lower and the upper part of the body.
It just helps you to dance well. Everything comes together to allow you to dance freely..."

I just want to say this DVD is phenomenal, i have been practising this workout for two months now and I can't believe the difference it has made in my ballet class. my technique is stronger and i feel i now have a much better understanding of correct posture and placement. I would definitely recommend this to any dancer, only thing I would say though is maybe it's more intermediate than beginners, I don't know how hard the intermediate is but this is pretty tough.
Also price is a bit steep but worth every penny in my view
