Beginner Ballet at Pearl Studios

Essential Ballet Barre Exercises & Ballet Movement Skills

This 90-minute class, limited to 24 students, is geared to adults who may have limited ballet training but are acquainted with the Finis Jhung Ballet Technique through his videos & classes.

The class includes Finis’s newest teaching technique – the PING SLAM BOUNCE – a very fast relevé (as fast as a ball bounces) – done in dance tempo (allegro) which is required when dancing in center floor with relevé poses, turns, & jumps. 

Finis is usually assisted by Team Finis assistant Mayumi Omagari who, when needed, demonstrates full-out the technical execution, timing & musicality of each exercise.

The intense barrework is designed to get you on your leg so that you can dance across the floor with various turning movements, linking steps, dance steps, & little jumps.

ATTIRE: Please wear ballet or exercise clothes. Ballet slippers or socks.
