Students (and professionals) seem to find the en dedans pirouette challenging to execute properly. Study this video and your problems will be solved. All you have to do is the right thing. As he did in the Pirouette Class 2 DVD, Finis has broken down the pirouette en dedans (simple, attitude, arabesque, à la seconde) into its component parts and shows you the proper sequence of movement which leads to beautifully balanced and controlled turns. After Finis shows you how to do each exercise, count-by-count, it is demonstrated with elegant precision by Isabella Boylston, principal dancer (as Finis predicts in the video) of The American Ballet Theatre. 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.
The following DVDs don’t have the SPECIAL FEATURE but do allow you to skip the Instructions and go straight to the demonstration with music by using the SKIP FORWARD button:
- The Finis Jhung Ballet Technique: Stretch, Turn-out, & Extension
- The Finis Jhung Ballet Technique: The Power Barre
Streaming videos do not offer multiple playback modes. Each DVD chapter/exercise is presented as an individual video. Once you complete an exercise, the next will play automatically. There is currently no “workout mode” available for streaming.
