Finis Jhung which shows you how to do the most frequently used center floor movements—the dancing steps— that travel forward and sideways and link to various poses, turns, and jumps. In this video, Finis breaks down count-by-count the following steps: pas de bourrée en avant (forward); pas de bourrée de côte (sideways); glissade; glissade précipitée (quick auxiliary step); and the chassé en avant and de côte. Each step is first shown slowly, and then quickly, and is demonstrated both right and left by Antonio Carmena, soloist of The New York City Ballet. The CD music is by Scott Killian.
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.
