DESCRIPTION

Count-by-count, Finis Jhung and Jennifer Goodman of The Joffrey Ballet show you how to connect individual steps in 12 different center combinations that build and progress from adagio to coda. This video reveals how successfully producing beautiful lines, balanced turns, and light jumps depends on the way you execute the preceding movement. Correctly performing that movement, the linking step, is the key to your success. Center Class A teaches 6 combinations based on glissades and pas de bourrées to the side and includes discussions on posture, breathing, and how to balance in passé. Center Class B teaches 6 combinations based on walks, runs, glissades, and pas de bourrées traveling forward and includes discussions on stretching for suppleness and using the mirror for pirouette practice.

CUSTOMER COMMENTS

"Two of my pre-pointe class won 1st place in the MOVE Dance Competition in Denver Colorado. They have had only 2 years of ballet! We are from a very small town in Wyoming and have only had a dance studio for 3 years. This was such an incredible experience, not only for my students but for myself and our dance academy. So I have to thank you once again for the fabulous instructional DVD's. We could not have accomplished this unbelievable moment without having your wisdom. Thank you for sharing your gift of dance with us."—Lori Bickford, Ballet Instructor, Meadowlark Academy of Dance, Newcastle, WY
