Finis shows and explains each exercise, Saige Miller does it, Finis corrects and coaches, Saige does it again. When it’s needed, Finis has Saige try a step several times so that it’s very clear to the viewer (and Saige) what needs to be done. Besides the technical “how to” information, Finis gives examples of musical and artistic choices that make the difference. With each exercise, it becomes clear that as you learn and perfect your preparations, you’ll get the results you’re looking for. The centerwork proceeds from working on pirouettes at the barre through grand pirouettes en dedans to new jumps such as balloté, balloné, entrechat royale, grand fouetté en tournant, and grand jeté saut de chat. 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.
