The Pilates Place offers training based on the quality of the Romana's Pilates method coupled with a view and sensitivity drawn from experience as professional dancers who have practiced several dance techniques: Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, Limon, release, dance theatre, Feldenkrais, improvisation, contact dance, etc…

In my opinion, there are two common points between dance and the Pilates method:

- the ability to use the imagination to project oneself into movement, and live the present moment in control AND feeling, 

- the resistance put up during an action, which gives the quality of the fluidity of the rhythm and the dynamics of the movement.
