During the many years of her teaching career, Maria Fay became increasingly concerned by the number of dancers who suffered serious injuries, and began to put together a series of floor exercises which would help dancers to avoid injuries, and assist those already suffering from injuries. Using her own exercises, and borrowing and adopting exercises and ideas from other regimes (including Yoga, Pilates, and Alexander techniques), Maria Fay gradually built up a systematic and complete structure out of numerous exercises which proved to be beneficial to dancers' general technique, improving their strength, stamina, turn-out and pliability, and which at the same time had a corrective and preventative nature.
Produced to accompany the book of these exercises, Maria Fay's Floor Barre, this video takes the viewer through three sample classes at different technical levels. With the help of her pupil Christina Beskou (herself a noted teacher) and by using advanced filming techniques, Maria Fay demonstrates the methodical building up of her system.
