Finis Jhung has finally done it! Now you can take class with Finis and eight of his “adult babies” even if you can’t get to New York City. This is a first-of-its-kind ballet instructional video for adults who have never studied ballet, but always wanted to. It doesn’t matter if you are 35 or 75. For the first time, in the privacy of your own home, take Finis’s class—the same class his students take in New York City. Learn the fundamentals of ballet technique, including important elementary exercises and useful terminology. You’ll get all the benefits: beautiful ballet posture, a strong core, and correct turnout and body alignment. Most important, you will get on your leg — that is, learn how to balance on one foot so you can learn more advanced movements including turns and jumps.

Play the DVD in 3 modes: Full Class, Individual Exercises or Workout Mode where you can run the exercises without instruction. Once you’ve learned the exercise and heard the instructions, you may want to go straight to the demonstration with music so you can have a work-out without interruption.
You can find this feature on these videos.
The following DVDs don’t have the SPECIAL FEATURE but do allow you to skip the Instructions and go straight to the demonstration with music by using the SKIP FORWARD button:
- The Finis Jhung Ballet Technique: Stretch, Turn-out, & Extension
- The Finis Jhung Ballet Technique: The Power Barre
Streaming videos do not offer multiple playback modes. Each DVD chapter/exercise is presented as an individual video. Once you complete an exercise, the next will play automatically. There is currently no “workout mode” available for streaming.
