Review of The Art of Pointework--Level 3--a DVD by Finis Jhu

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is an extremely effective teaching video for people attempting to master pointework. It starts with exercises for gracefully walking and running on 3/4 toe in pointe shoes, and progresses to a series of basic centerwork combinations aimed at helping the dancer to develop strong, clean footwork technique. What makes this DVD so unique and so helpful to the student, however, is the quality of the instruction that Mr. Finis Jhung provides. Each exercise is thoroughly explained with the aid of close-ups, slow-motions, freeze frames, and voice-overs, during which he points out precisely what should be done, and calls attention to common mistakes that make it impossible to do the exercises correctly. The music, by Scott Killian, is wonderful, and the exercises are expertly demonstrated by the lovely Michele Wiles of ABT. In all, this video is a precious gem among instructional DVD's, and viewers who study its contents are bound to improve their ballet skills."
