The extensively revised and updated material covers all the barre and center exercises for Levels 1 and 2, simple pirouettes and jumps from The Art of Teaching Turns and The Art of Teaching Jumps, and the best stretches from Ballet Plus. The companion CDs feature the fabulous new orchestrated class music of the master composer, Scott Killian, which are fast becoming the norm in studios all over the country. Here is a fresh new approach to an old art form which enables all students—of any age and body type—to balance, turn and jump.

Equipped with Finis’s time-tested point-by-point descriptions and in-depth analyses of exercises, you will be able to turn mystery into mastery. Learn to spot trouble before it happens. Solve those nagging technical problems which plague even the most advanced students.

Here is the ultimate building block which answers the unanswered questions. Consider it an investment in your future.

 

“If I wasn’t sold on your technique already, I most certainly would have been today. My dancers are learning jazz leaps and I haven’t done a jeté in over a year (due to injury) and quite honestly, I never really nailed it, even as a youngster. Today, I was working on a leap combination for class and I just told myself, “just mark it, don’t push it”. Anyway, I did it, and was watching in the mirror and I shocked myself. ‘That was me,’ I said. ‘Holy $@% #!’ Without really trying, my legs were split I was up in the air. Higher than I had ever gone before. I have no pain and now I can’t wait to really try! All I can say is that it is due to all the work I have been doing the past 2 years with your videos. I have built strength I have in my feet and legs! I never considered myself a jumper, but maybe, even at 47, I can now! THANK YOU! My students are going to learn so much this year!

“Harlan is very rural and impoverished. We are one of the poorest counties in Appalachia. Because I have a life-long passion for dance and believe in the important gifts an education in the performing arts provide I want our students to receive the best dance education possible in our small town with few resources. I am so thankful I discovered your DVD program and book because now we can bring expert training to our dancers. The DVDs, music and book allow me to create professional quality lessons with sound technique. It thrills my soul to see the skills and confidence of our young dancers improve. Thank you for pouring yourself into the lives of our youth. Your talent and wisdom will dance on through them.

—Stephanie K. DeLong Smith, Instructor, The Heather Adams Academy of Dance, Harlan, KY

“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!”

— Sharise Parvise, Studio Sharise, San Jose, CA

“I want to thank you for all your hard work! I love how you explain every detail! I am having a great dance year thanks to your fabulous ballet syllabus! It has really made a difference for me and my students, Thank you!”

— Wendy L. Bradshaw, Director, The Spirit of Dance, Fairplay, CO

“I began teaching your method about 6 months ago, after being born and bred into RAD. I am amazed at the beauty, practicality, the results I am getting with quite young students (around 10-12 years) and the sheer common sense of it.”

— Christine Van Geest, Corryong School of Dance, Victoria, Australia

“BRAVO! This is a MUST-have for all ballet teachers, regardless of the style of ballet they teach. It’s like having Finis in class with me. Love it, love it, love it. If only I had had a teacher like Finis when I was growing up. He gets me excited about ballet”

— Toni-Lynn Miles, Director, Middlesex Dance Center, Middlefield, CT
