Centerwork for Beginners - The Finis Jhung Ballet Technique Level 1
DESCRIPTION Even first-time beginners can do more than simply stand in one spot and repeat various positions. Have fun with Finis Jhung and a professional dancer as you perfect your posture, placement, alignment, and balance. Learn to cover space while you move from one foot to the other, forward and sideways, with the tombé, temps lié, piqué and passé par terre. Practice the most frequently used diagonal body positions and correct port de bras. Even more, its not too soon for you to begin learning basic turning movements such as the promenade, the quarter turn en dedans, and the half turn en dehors. Perfect your knowledge of the rudiments and build in the correct muscle memory which will eventually enable you to pirouette with ease and confidence. And, build self-esteem and confidence as you dance across the floor with the waltz step. Add on sweeping circles as you walk on half-toe and youre well on your way to dance heaven. Welcome to the wonderful world of ballet! CUSTOMER COMMENTS: "I tried your beginning waltz exercise in class yesterday and the kids got the concepts right away and they were so excited!! It is a brilliant way to teach the traveling waltz. I am constantly amazed that when the steps make sense ... the end result is so clear. I was thrilled to see the students achieve this while being musical at the same time. It is a truly winning combination. Again, thank you for your work!" - Pili Doheny, Assistant Director Pre-Ballet Program, Maple Conservatory of Dance, Irvine, CA "I absolutely love this video! I can't wait for my next session of beginners to start. This makes my life as a teacher so much easier! We will be dancing with joy and extreme precision, to be sure." - Sheila Savannah, Ballet Teacher, Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, Ballet 40/60, Annapolis, MD Purchase the Centerwork for Beginners DVD at http://finisjhung.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=31&products_id=51.
