Awesome ballet workout for beginners, or those who haven't d
Mands | New Zealand | 09/05/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I really enjoyed this beginners level ballet workout. I have to say I was a little surprised, and was definitely challenged by some of the barre exercises, but I am positive that I will improve the more times I do it. It's great that it's not too easy otherwise it would be boring. Finis describes very clearly how to use the correct technque and why - and i think this is very important for beginners. I always have classified myself as a beginner because I only got to grade 3 in ballet as a child (never got to do point) and then have done adult beginners ballet classes at dance centres since my late 20's - so have never had professional guidance. I found Finis gave better instruction that my ballet teachers in a real adult beginners class. I also have Melissa Lowe's Ballet Workout and although this is very different style of instruction, I am enjoying that as well. I am a little nervous about going to Level 2 barre, so will leave it for a while ;-)"
Fundamentally Sound

"Perfect for beginner level dancers. More than just a supplement to dance class, it supercedes an hour long, fast-paced class. Finis Jhung properly explains how to use your body's energy and strength for each dance move."
Outstanding Work

Exellent video for beginners

"This video The Finis Jhung Ballet Technique Level 1: Barrework for Beginners is mostly for beginner ballet students(especially, for adult beginners)but if you are not familiar with Finis Jhung's special method this video will be also very helpful to more advanced students. The video (as well as all other video's created by Finis Jhung) shows his revolutionary approach to ballet teaching. He starts with the proper posture which helps to maintain your balance. In every exercise he explains the purpose of the exercise, what muscles are involved and what requires special attention. Don't think that the exercises are easy! If you preform them correctly you will feel your muscles working! The most important thing about this video: it helps to build a solid foundation and enables you to advance quickly. You will be amazed with the results. I also highly recommend other videos by Finis Jhung. It's good to have barrework videos with centerwork videos of a corresponding level as good barre exercises are crucial for the centerwork. You can also read about Finis and this teaching on his website www.finisjhung.com and see more products. Moreover, Finis uses beautiful music of Scott Killian in his videos and gives very clear instructions for every exercise. The demonstrator performs the exercise and then Finis corrects her and talks about proper performance of each execise. Enjoy!"
