The Finis Jhung Ballet Technique: A Guide for Teachers & Students
The FJ Book Companion CD Package
"The DVD's are remarkable and I now own almost all that have been produced. As a product of Balanchine trained dancers, I know that I hold a high standard for my students. I love Finis and his approach to teaching. Everything in his DVD collection speaks to my own personal dance background. He is, in effect, reinforcing my memories and helping me pass substantial technique to my students."—Virginia Zellner, Studio D, Sherman,CT
"I would like to take the opportunity to THANK YOU for all that you teach usYour principles apply 100% so I have 11 year old girls doing things that took me years and years to understand and, sadder for me to accept, to do. I am also learning to dance Salsa with a professional dancer and — oh surprise! — I had to do chaînés and en dedans turns on high heels and guess what? Again, your teaching came to my rescue. I thought this was a little bit funny but also it amazed me to see how far your knowledge can reach. For that reason I wanted to share this with you as I think you deserve the recognition for it.So once again, thank you for all your dedication." — Heidi Ketchel, Teacher, Rochester, PA
"Loaded with your gentle guidance and helpful suggestions, your DVDs have yielded one revelation after another, and I have had a bunch of 'aha!' and 'wow, it works!' and 'I actually look professional!' moments! :-) I even bought some of your DVDs that are beyond my capabilities (the pointe DVDs, for example), because I love looking at them, and, even for a beginner like me, I have found numerous nifty helpful tips in those DVDs. I work full-time, and my ballet classes are just once a week (twice a week if I manage to get time off from work). I practice at home in my kitchen, which is where I watch your DVDs for guidance and sheer enjoyment. My ultimate ballet daydream is to be able to do pointe, but I know it needs dedicated practice for a bunch of years; and my 64-year old body is already thinking, 'are you nuts?' ha ha!Thanks again for your wonderful teaching!" — Loretta Seeley, Hospital Pharmacist, San Francisco, CA
"I have to say how grateful I am that you share your wisdom and your knowledge not only with professional dancers you coach but with people of dramatically lesser physical abilities. Perhaps because I came to organized movement relatively late I am keenly conscious of how much it adds to the joy of life. Your DVDs have helped impart that joy to people far outside the professional dance world. Thank you for that." — Laura Fasick, Moorhead, MN
"I want to thank you for all your hard work! I love how you explain every detail! I am having a great dance year thanks to your fabulous ballet syllabus! It has really made a difference for me and my students, Thank you! - Wendy L. Bradshaw, Director, The Spirit of Dance, Fairplay, CO
"BRAVO! This is a MUST-have for all ballet teachers, regardless of the style of ballet they teach. It's like having Finis in class with me. Love it, love it, love it. If only I had had a teacher like Finis when I was growing up. He gets me excited about ballet!" - Toni-Lynn Miles, Director, Middlesex Dance Center, Middlefield, CT
