2014 Student Comments
“Your workshop really helped me understand physics and technique more, giving me a broader and deeper understanding of ballet dancing and how to teach it. I can now do double pirouettes after years of thinking that I was not capable of doing so. I applied what you taught us, and voila, double pirouettes! Cheers!”
— Anna Suntay, Manila, Philippines
“Inspiring, amazing, and just a privilege to experience. It was all I had hoped for, and more! Yes, it was a long way to come from Australia, but worth every minute. I have learned so much and have so many new ideas to try out on my students. I love Finis ’s teaching because it is so logical and intuitive and just makes so much sense. Why doesn’t the whole world teach this way???”
— Rosemary Robenn, Elancé Adult Ballet School, Melbourne, Australia
”This was my second year and all can say is that I have to be back again next year! This year, my ‘teaching revelation’ was ‘discovering’ my shoulders and understanding how important it is to use them and integrate them in all the ballet movements that we do. All the ballet details that you bring to our attention and all the ballet wisdom that you share with us is priceless. I love your workshops. Each year your knowledge inspires me to work harder and harder for the sake of good ballet and good ballet teaching.”
—Angelica Diaz, Homestead, FL
“Finis is an amazing teacher. His clarity of instruction is par to none other.”
— Kate Brogdon, Lompoc, CA
“I loved every second of the workshop. I was constantly gaining so much knowledge to take back to my students. I loved how each exercise led to a more advanced option. Finis and his staff were incredibly generous. The Ailey facility is gorgeous.”
— Lauren Cozza, Sacketts Harbor, NJ
“It was an amazing experience to meet many different people and be taught by Finis. He is brilliant, and shares so much wisdom.”
— Anna Suntay, Manila, Phillipines
“Amazing! It is such a joy to take class with and learn from Finis. His infinite knowledge is only matched by his obvious true love of dance. I always leave this workshop with a renewed passion and clearer intention as a teacher. So many light bulb moments!”
— Hunter Burris, High Point, NC
“I absolutely loved every minute of it. Finis is an amazing teacher, using language and descriptions that are clear and make sense. I will definitely be coming back and will spread the word.”
— Shawna McPherson, Broadview Hts, OH
“Excellent! I liked absolutely everything. Can ’t wait to take another.”
— Michelle Gardner, Oneonta, NY
“I’ve finally found a true teacher of ballet. Finis Jhung is a treasure.”
—Julie Caprio, Hamilton Square, NJ
“I love Finis because his delivery to both old and new dancers is so effortless it ’s amazing.”
—Lisa Chu, Beverly Hills, CA
“Fantastic! Great teaching tips for instructors!”
—Allison Hickman-McFerren, Waynesboro, PA
“Inspiring. Finis gave the most logical and anatomically correct explanations of how to actually dance that I have ever experienced. I am 100% sold on Finis’s method.”
—Judith Elins, Jersey City, NJ
“I learned many useful tips for proper technique and alignment. It was well worth the cost.”
—Stacey Wawrzyniec, Buffalo, NY
“The workshop taught very detailed concepts about the way the body should move in order to successfully perform steps. I had never heard of some of these concepts, but they were easy to understand and truly simplified steps that are usually considered difficult.”
—Lillian Hill, Ft. Lauderdale, FL
“I enjoyed the slow breakdown of the movement and the clarity of presentation. This Workshop takes the dance teacher back to the roots of the movements is an outstanding reminder of proper technique and safe execution skills, as well as how to work with different physical attributes unique to each dancer.”
—Jolene McPherson, Brecksville, OH
“Finis’s instruction breaks down movement to its origins, which makes it easier to understand while increasing an understanding of how complex and difficult ballet really is!”
—Kathy Hardin, Teacher, Ridgefield, CT
“Great group size. We all had enough space to dance. Even though I had already been studying Finis’s DVDs, hearing his explanations in person was great — I now have a different way to articulate with my students which may help them gain a better understanding.”
—Cristina Urch, Milwaukee, WI
“Thank you for such a great experience. It is amazing how liberating it feels to focus on movements connecting the feet to the floor rather than just the steps themselves.”
—Dina Fonzone, Bethelehem, PA
“I love the idea of the almost-isometric plié — it makes total sense, although it is not the way I was trained. I also appreciate the idea that each dancer is different and needs to work with her true turnout in order to improve.”
—Tamara Swank, Greensburg, PA
“I got a huge dose of endorphins at the workshop. It was so liberating! Finis helps me to find myself, and that’s something for which I can’t thank him enough. He has found the most efficient way to teach us so that every single minute of our class counted. I came home feeling armed with knowledge and confidence. I can’t wait to come back again. “
—Heidi Ketchel, Rochester, PA
“I really liked the workshop. We were always doing something new, and I felt I was always learning. I liked the way Finis corrected us. It was brief and to the point. I feel this workshop has helped me drastically.”
—Jenna Hiljus, Cambridge, MN
“The workshop opened up my ‘student mind.’ I was able to think and work in a way that I can pass on to my clients. The best information for me was the technique for pirouettes and turning.”
—Sarah Brown, Teacher & Studio Owner, Lincoln, NE
