Zoom Live: Beginner Ballet Level 2
Saturday, July 31 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT$15
Get On Your Leg So You Can Dance!
This class is geared to adults who have limited ballet training but are acquainted with the Finis Jhung Ballet Technique through his videos or classes. You will learn the essential ideas of the ballet dancing process as well as the often-neglected basics that make the difference. This is a very intense barre which works all the muscles as well as your mind. It is a class for the serious student who eventually plans on taking advanced level classes.
12 or 13 barre exercises. If you haven’t a barre, you will need two chairs (preferably high-backed, one for each hand). The class will conclude at the barre practicing the pirouette en dehors from the fifth position first as a quarter-turn, & then a half-turn with a bourrée suivi.
Finis will explain & 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 placement & angle of your camera 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
