Learn to step into the air and over-cross your glissade so you strike beautiful poses on flat, half-toe and in the air with speed and elegance. Each exercise teaches you how to correctly plié and relevé on one leg so you develop the muscular strength you need to have so that you can maximize your range of movement while avoiding injury. Finis Jhung breaks down each exercise in detail and then it is superbly demonstrated by Antonio Carmena, soloist of The New York City Ballet, whose “beautiful line and astounding jumps” says The New York Times, are nothing short of “revelatory.” The CD music is by Scott Killian.

I’ve been doing your DVDs with my mother in her 60s. It’s helping her out a lot with learning to keep her balance and have good posture. Even the slightest movements have helped strengthen her muscles. We love you.”

— Trula Hudelson

“I have been training with your videos now for a year and a half; six days (sometimes seven) each week. Because of your training and techniques, I have been able to improve my own technique. At age 46, I have become a better dancer and teacher. I apply your techniques in all my classes, whether they be ballet, jazz, tap or hip-hop. After all, a turn is a turn, no matter the dance idiom. My classes run a little slower than they used to, but I prefer quality rather than quantity and my students seem to really enjoy the process and are learning the proper way to do things. Most importantly, they are understanding the reason why they do what they do. I want my students to dance ‘clean’ and don’t just ‘shake it and fake it.’ You are my hero and I want to be the teacher you are! I have gone through almost all your DVDs and have now begun learning from your pointe package. I can’t wait!”

“After applying what I learned and then taught from studying this video, one of my adult students exclaimed, ‘I feel like I can actually move across the floor now! I’m going to send my gymnast daughter here for help with her floor work.’”

— Joyce DiLauro, Director, Starship Dance, Guilford, CT
