Editorial Reviews

Product Description

"Ballet 201, Beyond the Basics" is an informative class that picks up right where "Ballet 101, A Beginner's Class" leaves off. Adults and children, who already know the basics of ballet, start with stretching and warm-up. They are then guided through a quick review of the barre basics, and lead right into the instruction and demonstration of more advanced moves off of the barre. The instruction is presented without music accompaniment, and the class ends with a grand dance finale to music, all incorporating what's been taught. It's a taste of the arts wrapped up in a healthy workout that is specifically designed for beginners. It is recommended that you use "Ballet 101, A Beginner's Class" as a prerequisite to this video, unless you have some prior knowledge of ballet.

"Ballet 201" is an easy-to-follow, hands-on video that is based upon the syllabus of major a University of California dance program, and is both endorsed and recommended by private instructors. Ballet terms & definitions that assist dancers can be printed from the abridgeclub.com site.

Dancers who are ready to use their new moves in fun & challenging dance combinations to classical music will benefit from, "Ballet 101 & 201, Combinations 1" and "Ballet 101 & 201, Combinations 2". DANCE NOW & TAKE YOUR BOW.

From the Contributor

From the Producer:

Do you have the desire to begin ballet, but don't have the time to take a formal class? Is there something that makes you feel uncomfortable attending a formal class? Do you just need a refresher course or a practice guide? Maybe, your child expresses an interest in the arts, but your wallet doesn't. Even if you sign your child up, you want him or her to be prepared for the experience. These are the reasons why we made "Ballet 201, Beyond the Basics," and its prerequisite, "Ballet 101, A Beginner's Class." If you are totally new to Ballet, you will need to begin with "Ballet 101." "Ballet 101" will introduce the barre exercises to you. Once you have them down, you can move on to "Ballet 201."

Under the direction of an instructor and her two young protégés, "Ballet 201" will give you a quick review of the barre exercises that you have already learned (without the instruction from "Ballet 101") and add on from there. They both have stretching and warm-up. The class is presented with soft piano accompaniment and the instructor counting out the beats for you to move to. The dance at the end of the class is described, marked and then performed to a classical music piece. Young children should be supervised by an adult so as not to acquire any bad dance habits. Should you have any questions about our classes prior to purchasing, please feel free to contact us at info@abridgeclub.com.

If you've never danced, I think you need the first DVD, because in that one, the instructor takes the time to actually teach the technique. Whereas in this one, she takes you through the moves, but expects you to know the technique. It is obvious that you can't just throw someone into ballet. I love this series, especially the DVD chapter breaks!

It was so easy to use this series. I am not exactly in shape for a public class, and just wanted to explore dancing ballet without getting embarrassed. I have both DVDs, and they each have something special to offer to those of us with no experience.

This video easy to follow and provides top-notch Ballet instruction. The whole production is very professional. It shows you the correct way to execute each move without making anything too complicated to follow. I recommend it!

If you want to dance ballet by yourself, out side your studio or dancing class, this is the one. I love the warm up or bar work first, then have fun with some dancing steps.

This is bascially the same production was Ballet 101, just edited and with a few new moves. Don't waste your money. Stick with Ballet 101 to learn the basic positions.

It's a good introductory ballet video especially for little girls. The moves aren't too difficult and it is slow moving.

I came to this video because I'm going to be away from traditional ballet classes for a period of time and I wanted a viable alternative. It was a decent class, if someone is following their class sequence, but it is not really meant for someone who has had ballet for any length of time.
The most confusing thing about the video is that sometimes the exercises are demonstrated and then preformed, and sometimes they are just preformed while she explains them. The tempo of all the exercises is slow enough to accommodate either method, and after the first viewing of the lesson the confusion is significantly less.
In ballet it is not necessary to preform the most difficult steps to improve, and I intend to use this video to its fullest, but I was looking for something a little more intermediate in level.

Pointe
Since this video seems to be aimed at advanced beginners, I highly doubt any pointework is included. Finis Jhung has a collection of DVDs of both flatwork and pointework. The only downside is that barrework and centrework are on seperate DVDs. So for each level there are 2 DVDs to purchase. He... Read More
