Exploring these questions has been Annemari Autere’s quest for the last 20 years. Her innovative approach to
movement analysis and artistic expression brought her to consider dance technique as mechanical and the
deeper lying, red muscle fibers as its sole source. At the same time she explored artistic expression and how the
red muscle fiber’s, also called core muscles, connection to the emotional nervous system gives life and meaning
to the mechanical, basic movement patterns.

Her vision of the muscular system consisting of inside and outside muscles offers a unique
approach to mastering the dancers' instrument – the body. She proposes to look at it as a black &
white picture: "Technique is black, dancing is white. Technique and dancing should be tools for a
lifetime of exploring the multiple colors of artistic expression."

The superficial muscles, which contrary to the deeper lying muscles, are easily felt, only serve three purposes:
jumping, running, climbing. In BalletBodyLogic they are not considered until awareness of the red muscle fibers is
understood. Opting for quality not quantity BalletBodyLogic proposes to start training by simple exercises with
specific tools; a small ball and an elastic band. Alignment and effortless technique are understood by focusing on basic notions like balance, pushing off gravity and space in the joints.

Ideal alignment leads to a neutral bodymind. Without superfluous muscular tensions we benefit
from effortless and efficient posture and optimal movement potential, and are free to express our
emotions and its various artistic expressions.

The insight offered through BalletBodyLogic can speak to all people interested in mastering a technique, dancers
as well as athletes, and those who simply wish to enjoy a body in equilibrium.
