Finis Jhung Sunday Intensive for Adult Beginners
Each Intensive will teach the basic movement skills you need to know for the Advanced Beginner level. You will learn linking steps, which connect to various body positions such as the pas de bourrée, chassé, glissade, and the waltz; how to do simple turning movements including the pirouette; and some of the basic jumps such as the pas de chat, jeté, and sissone. The material will vary with each Intensive.
REGISTRATON is required as the class size is limited. All previous Intensives have been sold out with turn-away students.
FEE: $30 per Intensive. Please note there are no refunds, exchanges, or credits.
NOTE: This Intensive is not for those with no previous ballet experience. You should have had at least eight Absolute Beginner lessons in order to participate fully. Participants should take an earlier class in order to be properly warmed up as there are no barre exercises.
"I have been taking ballet lessons since 1958. Really. Though I have had great ballet teachers, not one of them ever explained things the way Finis does in his classes and in the intensives. He actually tells you—movement by movement—how to do each step. If you will just do exactly what he says, you will dance. What a gift! I wish I had met him when I was six." — Regina Paul, New York, NY
