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.
