Zoom Live: Beginner Ballet Level 1
April 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDTFree
The Nucleus of All Ballet Movement.
In this class, Finis Jhung provides inexperienced or out-of-shape adults with the ballet basics that make the difference:
Regardless of a person’s anatomy, background, or aptitude, the Finis Jhung Ballet Technique makes it possible for all adult ballet beginners to master the basics of ballet technique so that they can stand & move with the balance, strength & grace which identify classical ballet dancing.
13 barre exercises. 1 center exercise. If you haven’t a barre, you will need two chairs (preferably high-backed, one for each hand) so your arms can reach sideways in second position. Try to improvise so you can do all the barre exercises with both arms reaching sideways. The center exercise will be an adagio where you will be in one place, taking a step forward & then backward; then taking a step sideways to the right, then the left.
Finis will explain and show each exercise which you will perform along with him. Then you will repeat the exercise following a demonstrator so that Finis can watch & correct you.
Ideally (you may have to rearrange your furniture) you have an open space approximately 5 feet by 5 feet so that you can move forward, backward, & sideways.
Ballet class attire or tight-fitting clothing is recommended so that Finis can see whether or not you are properly aligned on your supporting side with pelvic muscles fully engaged. Please put your hair up so that Finis can clearly see the placement of your head & shoulders.
Please do not dance on a rug or carpet. Work on a smooth flat floor so that you can easily slide your foot smoothly out & in.
Experiment with the placing of your viewing device so that Finis can see your entire body from head to toe with arms reaching out to the sides.
90 minutes of exercises & coaching by Finis with a demonstrator
