Barrework for Beginners - The Finis Jhung Ballet Technique Level 1
DESCRIPTION From head to toe, Finis Jhung gives you a fresh new view of the essential ideas of classical ballet that will transform your physique — and your psyche. The emphasis here is on learning ballet from the inside-out. Instead of merely assuming textbook positions and memorizing terminology, all the exercises in this class are designed to develop kinesthesia — the sense that detects bodily position, weight, or movement of the muscles, tendons, and joints. Learn to "see and feel" what you are doing. Learn the "why and how" that create the "what." Teachers have found that this class works wonders with younger students. CUSTOMER COMMENTS: "A few years ago, I was told that I wouldn't be able to walk by the time I turned forty. I refused to listen, joined a ballet class and purchased your DVDs. I just adore your training methods. You leave nothing out, explaining everything, which for me is essential. I am still walking and am stronger then when I began. Thanks." - Rebecca Hart, Secretary to the Director or CE, Syracuse, NY "If you have never stepped into a ballet class before, or if you are recovering from an injury, or if you are a professional wanting to realign your body and mind away from the pressures of performance, this video is a must. Finis Jhung incorporates the aesthetic of ballet with common sense and illustrates the healthful way to approach the ballet vocabulary. In addition, the structure of the class demonstrates the importance of lining up the body to support the ballet steps and stresses the importance of maintaining the posture, head, neck, shoulders - parts of the anatomy that are often overlooked in an effort to grind out multiple steps. For me, this calm and uncomplicated approach to presenting a ballet class is the one that guarantees improvement." - Phyllis Goldman, Dance Critic, Backstage Publications, New York, NY "After an exhausting fourteen-hour work day I practiced with your Level 1 Barrework for Beginners, and couldnt believe how I no longer felt tired but warm, relaxed, and able to concentrate again. Your way of teaching and explaining is what I have always longed for and missed in ballet classes. Thank you very, very much for making your experience and knowledge available to all of us around the world." - Beate Stüve-Brammen, Attorney, Munich, Germany Purchase the Barrework for Beginners DVD at http://finisjhung.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=29&products_id=50.
