Finis thought 2017 would be his last year of workshops, but he has a new hip, and he’s inspired to keep on going!

“His method works all the time… Finis teaches you how to dance. It’s scientific. It totally makes sense the way he teaches.”

“What an inspiration — a magical man who truly loves what he does.”
— Jenifer Farrell, Director of Intensive Ballet
Barb’s Centre for Dance, Green Bay, WI

“Your technical approach to dance should be the USA standard.”
— Deborah Bianca, Artistic Director
Dance Theater of New England, Bridgewater, MA

“Why doesn’t the whole world teach this way???”
— Rosemary Robenn
Elancé Adult Ballet School, Melbourne, Australia

Do you wish your students were better? Want them to nail their balances, turns and jumps? They can, and would, if they knew HOW to do it. And that is what you will learn at this teacher workshop—HOW to do those elusive steps! For the past 45 years, Finis has been enlightening professionals as well as amateurs in New York City and at workshops and conventions in the USA and internationally. His teaching technique is based on years of studying the world’s best dancers in performance and on video and finding that these great artists prepare for balances, turns and jumps in ways not taught in the traditional ballet class. At this workshop, you will learn the “untaught” preparations which will transform your dancers—and you. Bring your dance clothes so you can take class. Feel free to sit and observe whenever you wish.
