Art of Pointework Level 4 Finis Jhung Ballet Technique

Reviewing Michele's debut as the ballerina in Balanchine's Theme & Variations at The Metropolitan Opera House in New York City, Jennifer Dunning of the New York Times said "Ms. Wiles tore through the demanding ballet like a colt, newly released and running free . . . her big open torso and appetite for space were a pleasure."

This DVD shows you the "secrets." You'll be amazed when you see what Michele does in slow motion, close-up, and freeze frame. The beauty and precision of her pointe work is riveting and eye-opening. Finis analyzes all of her movements, so that you can understand and apply what you see and hear.

Art of Pointework Level 5: Finis Jhung Ballet Technique DVD

Art of Pointework Level 5 Finis Jhung Ballet Technique

Finis shows and explains each exercise, 15-year-old Saige demonstrates on both sides, Finis comments and analyzes, and then Saige repeats the exercise.

This video is all about the preparations that create the results. Watch how Saige turns her plié and rolls through her feet. As she starts dancing across the floor, notice how Saige places and works her plié and pushes with her feet, which results in beautifully placed triple pirouettes en dehors. Finis and Saige then concentrate on the en dedans pirouette, showing you how to prepare for these tricky turns so that you will really get on your leg and turn with ease.

Besides giving you technical instructions and demonstrations on everything from simple pirouettes to grand pirouettes en dedans, Finis has also choreographed some of the exercises so that you can work on your dancing skills. And, of course, Saige works on the ballerina’s "bread & butter" steps — piqué turns and fouetté turns. After Saige shows her single fouetté turns, she goes on and does doubles. Dance, Ballerina, Dance!

1. Rolling through the feet, at the barre;
2. Turning the plié, half way, at the barre;
