Finis Jhung

Ballet Dancing Instruction. Judy Weiss, or The Queen of Toe Shoes as she is affectionately referred to by reigning New York ballerinas, tells you all about the construction of the pointe shoe and how to find the shoe for you. Ashlee Knapp, now dancing with The New York City Ballet, shows you special foot and ankle strengthening exercises, how to correctly prepare your shoe and foot, and how to tie your ribbons. Running Time: 56 minutes. This video provides a wonderful introduction to pointework for the absolute beginner. Starting with the importance of the shoes being properly fitted, it covers everything from how to tie the pointe ribbons, to how to pad the toes, to how to break-in the shoes. The video then provides a substantial and varied group of exercises. Many of these involve plies and releves in various positions, which increase the strength of foot muscles, while emphasizing how essential it is to be able to roll smoothly from 1-2 toe to 3-4 toe to pointe. Toward the end of the teaching session, the exercises become more complex, combining pique steps and pas de bourrees. This provides the new pointe student with the delightful feeling of dancing at the barre, rather than just performing exercises. This DVD is very informative and lots of fun. The exercises are well-explained, beautifully demonstrated, and accompanied by rich and pleasing music.

Rosemary Boross (Actor)

D016 Kids Childrens Dance Lessons DVD - Kids Childrens Dancing Instruction. Ballet is fun and easy with this classic program created especially for pre-schoolers. This is an incredible, fun class for young children. Weve rented this video from our library more than 20 times and still want to own it. This teacher is every parent and childs dream. It is a dance class video, no real frills. My 5 year old daughter on the other hand takes it very seriously. Today she even asked me, Mommy next year when I take dance, can I have this teacher if shes available? I have even found myself on more than one occasion reliving my ballerina dreams with my daughter, focusing on the instructor, trying desperately to get my 30 something old feet to do the moves. At least twice a week we push back the coffee table and roll up the rug. This one is a winner in our home. The instruction is Excellent. Technique is Perfect level for a young child. To an experienced professional it may appear to be lacking, however it is important to remember what the audience is for this video. Its fun and educational without being overwhelming... helping to prepare young children for formal dance lessons in the future years. When we put this video in all 4 of my kids (5,4 and 3 year old twins)stopped what they were doing and began following along. They even clapped for themselves between songs and begged me to let them watch it all the way through to the end. Thats proof enough if a good video for me.

Rosemary Boross (Actor)

D016 Kids Childrens Dance Lessons DVD - Kids Childrens Dancing Instruction. Budding ballerinas ages 4 to 6 receive a thorough introduction to ballet at the tutelage of Miss Rosemary Boross in this 36-minute video. The program features Rosemary Boross, a student helper, and a small class of preschool age dancers as they explore the basics of warming up at the barre, stretching, center work, dancing across the floor, and reverence. Miss Rosemary first describes and demonstrates steps like plie, tendu, sute, chasse, and grande jete, then leads her class through each step to the accompaniment of original piano music by Bruce Stephen Foster. Because the program covers a large variety of steps and progresses fairly quickly, it is most effective when used in conjunction with enrollment in an introductory ballet class. Alternately, young dancers may want to view the video in short segments, then follow with ample practice time to ensure the correct execution of each individual step. A wonderful introduction for children to the world of ballet, especially designed for ages four through six.
