DESCRIPTION

This will be one of your favorite classes because it's got all the "Finis" things that teachers and students want, and it’s simple enough for Adult beginners as well as your advanced beginners ready to move up. At the barre, Finis presents and explains each exercise, and while the unearthly Noriko demonstrates, Finis stands by and coaches. In center floor, Finis shows and breaks down each exercise, Noriko demonstrates, Finis analyzes and corrects, Noriko repeats, and, when necessary, Finis gives further pointers. A real plus to this video is seeing Noriko float across the floor with utter serenity and movements that flow like silk. She really casts a spell on you. The class begins with Finis's famous floor stretches, and then proceeds to a simply constructed barre that stretches and strengthens. In the center, Finis has designed the class to develop movement skills in different tempi as you dance your way across the floor. All exercises travel, turn, and constantly change legs and positions: from tendu and pirouettes to adagio to jumps that include assemblé, sissone ouverte to arabesque, and grand jeté. You're going to learn a lot from this class!

CUSTOMER COMMENTS

"I want you to know how much my students and I have enjoyed your videos and CD's. I Love your relaxed way and interesting approach to body placement. I so enjoy the floor work at the beginning of the video." - Barbara Hyland Janisaitis, Teacher, Daytona Beach, FL

"I really enjoy the Classic Classes DVDs since I need to follow a structured class. My schedule does not permit me to make the local ballet classes, which is why your DVDs are so valuable to me. Someone like me can take class from you, Finis Jhung, everyday! What joy and happiness you bring to my heart and spirit." - Sandra Chiodo, Pittsburgh, PA
