Beginner Ballet

Turnout Stretches, Barre Exercises, Linking & Dance Steps

This newly revised two-hour class is aimed at adults familiar with the Finis Jhung Ballet Technique. The class begins with floor exercises that improve your turn-out. The barre focuses on Finis’s newest teaching concept “PING-SLAM-BOUNCE*” — the quick plie-relevé — and practicing the pirouette en dehors from the fourth position. The class ends with linking and dance steps that can be done in your barre area, such as the pas de bourrée, glissade, balancé and waltz.

Finis will explain & show each exercise which you do along with him. You will then repeat the exercise led by a TEAM FINIS demonstrator while Finis watches & corrects you. After the first hour, there will be a 5-minute break.

EQUIPMENT: A ballet barre, or two sturdy high-backed chairs (one for each hand). Your barre space should allow you to take 3 or 4 steps in any direction. Avoid working on carpeting which will not allow you to slide your feet or turn.

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

Experiment with the placement & angle of your camera so you are visible from head to toe with arms reaching out to the sides.

Essential Ballet Barre Exercises & Ballet Movement Skills

This 90 minute class 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. 

After Finis breaks down & demonstrates each exercise which you do along with him, it is repeated & demonstrated as needed by a TEAM FINIS demonstrator, Mayumi Omagari or Ai Toyoshima. As you dance along with them, Finis is able to watch & correct you. 

The class ends with practicing the pirouette from the fourth position. If time allows, you will also practice a linking or dance step.

EQUIPMENT: A ballet barre, or two sturdy high-backed chairs (one for each hand). Your barre space should allow you to take 3 or 4 steps in any direction. Avoid working on carpeting which will not allow you to slide your feet out & in.

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

Experiment with the placement & angle of your camera so you are visible from head to toe with arms reaching out to the sides.
