Class Descriptions

Beginner Ballet Level 1 – April 7, 2021

The class is especially for adults who have never taken a ballet class and those who are out of shape and haven’t danced for a while.

Regardless of a person’s anatomy, background, or aptitude, the Finis Jhung Ballet Technique makes it possible for all adults to master the basics of ballet technique so that they can stand and move with balance, strength and grace.

In this class, Finis Jhung teaches the essential ideas that are the foundation for classical ballet dancing: proper posture, turnout correctly, balance on one foot, and how to plié and spring up into a specific pose.

Finis explains and demonstrates each exercise which you do with him. The exercise is then repeated by TEAM FINIS demonstrators Mayumi Omagari and Ai Toyoshima whom you follow along while Finis watches and corrects you.

An added benefit of this LIVE REWIND is that it includes Finis’s latest teaching idea: the PING-SLAM-BOUNCE where you learn to plié and spring up into a pose as fast as possible, which you must do when dancing across the studio along with other students.

EQUIPMENT: a ballet barre or two high-backed chairs for support; a smooth floor area approximately 6 feet square.

ATTIRE: ballet class attire or tight-fitting clothing. Ballet slippers or socks.

1 hour and 48 minutes of do-along exercises with Finis Jhung.

$10 for 48 hour rental.

Beginner Ballet Level 2 – April 14, 2021

This class is geared to adults who may have limited ballet training but are acquainted with the Finis Jhung Ballet Technique through his videos and 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, and jumps.

After Finis breaks down and demonstrates each exercise which you do along with him, it is repeated and demonstrated, as needed, by the TEAM FINIS demonstrators Mayumi Omagari or Ai Toyoshima. As you dance along with them, Finis is able to watch and correct you.

The class ends with practicing the pirouette from fifth position.

EQUIPMENT: a ballet barre, or two sturdy high-backed chairs (one for each hand). A smooth floor space approximately 6 feet square.

ATTIRE: ballet class attire or tight-fitting clothing. Ballet slippers or socks.

1 hour and 35 minutes of do-along exercises with Finis Jhung.

$15 for 48 hour rental.

Beginner Ballet Barre – April 12, 2020

This is the beginner ballet class barre I taught my “adult babies” at the Ailey Extension in NYC. The class is not for the absolute beginner. It is geared to adults who have had some ballet training and know the fundamentals.

The purpose of this class is to “get you on your leg” so that you can balance, turn, and jump. You will strengthen your balance as you strengthen your feet and identify the #1 leg — your pillar — through which the body weight falls fully into an active foot, balancing, ready to push down into motion.

At the same time, you will learn to activate the supporting arm/shoulder by pressing firmly on the barre. This prepares you to use your arms to facilitate the movements of your legs in center floor combinations.

EQUIPMENT: a ballet barre, or 2 sturdy high-backed chairs – one for each hand. A smooth floor space approximately 6 x 6 feet square.

ATTIRE: ballet class attire or tight-fitting clothing. Ballet slippers or socks.

52 minutes of do-along exercises with Finis Jhung.

$5 for 48 hour rental.

Strengthen Your Turnout – April 16, 2020

Turnout defines classical ballet technique. The outward rotation of the legs in the hips expands the dancer’s range of movement and creates beautiful body positions unique to the art of ballet. Adults who have limited turnout and flexibility and had little or no ballet training must learn how to find their turnout potential and maximize it.

In this special class, you will learn how to access and utilize the muscles in your groin that affect your turnout. You will mainly be stretching these muscles very slowly, according to your own ability, in order to avoid muscle strain.

You will perform exercises sitting on the floor and standing alone in center floor.

Adult ballet beginners who have taken this class have been surprised to learn they can improve their turnout and move with balletic elegance and grace.

EQUIPMENT: You will not require any support from a barre or chairs. Try to have a clear floor space approximately 6 feet square.

ATTIRE: ballet class attire or tight-fitting clothing. Ballet slippers or socks.

47 minutes of do-along exercises with Finis Jhung.

$5 for 48 hour rental.

Strengthen Your Turnout – May 19, 2021

Turnout defines classical ballet technique. The outward rotation of the legs in the hips expands the dancer’s range of movement & creates beautiful body positions unique to the art of ballet. Adults who have limited turnout & flexibility & had little or no ballet training will find this class extremely helpful.

In this class you will learn how to access & utilize the muscles in your groin that affect your turnout. You will mainly be stretching these muscles, but at the same time you will perform every movement slowly, according to your own ability, in order to avoid muscle strain.

You will perform 3 exercises sitting on the floor and 8 exercises standing alone in center floor: some stationary, some moving sideways, some moving forward on the diagonal in classical ballet poses, little jumps in first and second positions, & 2 choreographed adagios.

After Finis demonstrates and leads you through the first four exercises, he then introduces and breaks down count-by-count each of the remaining exercises, which are demonstrated in TEAM FINIS dancers Ai Toyoshima or Mayumi Omagari. As they perform, Finis will watch you, pointing out the finer details and offering corrections when necessary.

EQUIPMENT: You will not require any support from a barre or chairs. Try to have a clear floor space approximately 6 feet square.

ATTIRE: ballet class attire or tight-fitting clothing. Ballet slippers or socks.

1 hour and 22 minutes of do-along exercises with Finis Jhung.

$10 for 48 hour rental.

Centerwork for Adult Beginners – April 2020

Finis shows you how to pas de bourrée and waltz—the most basic dancing steps that travel sideways and forward and link to various poses, turns, and jumps.

In this video, Finis breaks down count-by-count the pas de pas de bourrée de côte (3 steps moving sideways) and the pas de valse en avant (3 steps moving forward).

Unique to Finis’s teaching is his emphasis on learning how to work and move the torso and arms to facilitate the movements of the feet and legs. Energy from the core of the body radiates outward through all four limbs constantly, which results in dancing that is elegant and graceful.

EQUIPMENT: No barre or chairs necessary. Try to have a clear, smooth floor space approximately six feet square. A mirror is desirable so you can check your positioning and placement as you follow the video.

ATTIRE: Ballet or exercise clothing so you can clearly see the outline of your body. .

48 minutes of do-along exercises with Finis Jhung.

$5 for 48 hour rental.
