BalletBodyLogic, created by Annemari Autere, is an innovative approach to movement analysis. Her vision of the muscular system consisting of inside and outside muscles where technique is taken care of by the deeper laying res muscle fibers, offers a unique approach to mastering the dancers' instrument – the body. Based on basic movement patterns and the study of the fundamental principles of verticality and alignment, BalletBodyLogic allows each dancer to approach an ideal skeletal alignment and thus effortlessly control various dance techniques. To cite Mabel E. Todd, "Why hold our bony parts together when we can let them sit or hang ?"
