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.

Cost: $25 per class
