Finis Jhung teaches ballet the way it’s done on stage by the world’s best dancers. While studying these extraordinary dancers in performance, in the classroom, and on video, he discovered that they prepare for balances, turns, and jumps in ways not taught in the traditional ballet class. His instructional videos show you all the “secret” preparations which result in easy balances, space-eating movements, multiple turns, airy jumps, and new-found artistry.

In each video, Finis first presents and shows you how to do each exercise. It is then demonstrated by a professional dancer while he stands by and coaches. Center exercises are usually analyzed and repeated with revisions. The recurring theme in each video is to make sure each student knows how to dance on one leg and understands the mechanics of every movement. As you will read from the customer comments, Finis Jhung’s videos are loaded with detailed instructions, and he spares no effort in explaining HOW to do everything.

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.

“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!

“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!”
