This video has two different center classes, each with six combinations that build and progress. Count-by-count, Finis Jhung and Johanna Snyder of The American Ballet Theatre show you how to create beautiful lines, balanced turns, by correctly executing various linking steps. Knowing how to connect your movements is the key to your success. Center Class C teaches six combinations based on pas de bourrées, soutenus, balancés, and chassés that turn. Center Class D teaches six combinations based on grand jeté en tournant, fouetté arabesque, emboité, saut de basque, and connecting steps that turn. The video concludes with a discussion on proper turn-out, and the proper use of muscles and bones. The CD music is by Webster Smith.
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:
