Well, what’s left to say? Surely the most magnificent male dancer, ever. Notice how he nails each landing and emphasizes it by remaining in position as long as possible. Also notice how he works as many different levels and directions as possible. Plus, he is so elegant and pure in form. I saw him do this the Met and still get thrills and chills. A human wonder!
Besides performing internationally with both the Joffrey and Harkness Ballet Companies, Finis Jhung also did “one night stands” throughout the USA. The tours lasted as long as ten weeks, traveling by bus from city to city. Each week Finis usually performed in four or five different cities, where the biggest challenge was always trying to find a place to eat after the performance.
