Description

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.

Note: The Finis Jhung Ballet Technique Level 4: Centerwork on Turns and Pirouette Class 2 are no longer available as DVDs and are not included in this collection. As a result, these two videos will be added to your streaming account to view online.

“I’m a 33 year-old woman trying to go back to ballet after 9 years. The mentality of ‘She can’t do it the first time so she has no talent, so I cannot teach her’ damaged me a lot. I want to do better, and I think I deserve to do better.

“When I saw your videos with your adult students and saw their lines and gracefulness, I thought to myself ‘Wait – so it CAN be taught to EVERYONE, and that means I can learn it too.’ … My teachers made me think it was me, that I had zero talent, and that I would never look as good as I want to.

“I believe your book and videos will help me beyond my imagination. If nothing, they will help me get rid of these voices of my past teachers in my head saying that I can never turn clean pirouettes or jump weightlessly. Because maybe I can? 

Thank you for bringing a new approach to teaching and learning ballet.

— Gokce Ertas

“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!”
