Kathryn Sullivan

Kathryn SullivanI designed this product in response to observing dancers hanging various types of cloth or clothing on the barre when it came time to stretch.  Many ballet dancers these days don’t wear tights with feet; consequently rubbing and sticking occurs when sliding.  Also, many dancers have expressed discomfort in the Achilles tendon when placing their ankles on the barre.

 I experimented with a few different prototypes over the year, and ultimately came up with this fleece version which works marvelously!

I have gotten very favorable reactions to this product from teachers and students, and order requests from all over the world.

Kathryn Sullivan has been teaching ballet in New York City for over twenty five years and currently teaches at Steps on Broadway, Peridance Capezio Center, and Barnard College at the Columbia University.
