Classic Classes 2: Intermediate/Advanced Turning Class - Finis Jhung
DESCRIPTION Finis gives this exhilarating turning class to Michele Wiles, here a teen-aged Gold Medalist at Varna and today a Principal Dancer of The American Ballet Theatre. You'll see how Michele got the Gold as she breezes through Finis's choreographed combinations which cover space and progress from adagio to grand allégro and are loaded with turning movements including multiple pirouettes (sometimes 4 turns) in passé, attitude, arabesque, and à la seconde. At the end, youll see some dazzling fouetté turns. We've also included slow motion footage of Michele's fouetté turns and grand pirouettes. Michele also has a lovely floating jump and it's thrilling to watch her fly through the air. Perfectly schooled and completely uninhibited in showing her love of dance and passion for movement, Michele will enchant you the same way she does critics and audiences the world over. At the barre, Finis gives each exercise, and then stands by and coaches Michele as she demonstrates. In center floor, Finis shows and explains each exercise, Michele demonstrates, Finis analyzes and coaches, Michele repeats, and then Finis summarizes. Sometimes Michele will repeat certain turns or jumps for clarification. There is slow motion footage of Michele's fouetté turns and en dedans pirouettes. See a star in the making!
