Review

I am forever indebted to David Howard for his enlightened teaching for over twenty years. He imparts his love of dance by inviting you to take a journey with him...you only have to want to go. Gelsey Kirkland (May, 2005) --Dance Magazine

About the Actor

International master teacher, David Howard celebrated his 40th year of teaching in America in 2006. Born and educated in England, Mr. Howard was trained at the Cone-Ripman School, now the Arts Educational School in London. He completed the RAD Syllabus and at age 16 was awarded the Adeline Genee Medal, the highest honor a British dance student can receive. <P> Mr. Howard s classes became the mainstay in the professional training of many notable dancers. On any given day, scattered among the serious ballet students who found their way to David s barre, one could plie, tendu and pirouette next to the most elite in the field. Makarova, Baryshnikov, Gelsey Kirkland, Peter Martins, Cynthia Harvey, dancers from American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet and numerous other companies throughout the world have made David the most sought after teacher. Currently, he teaches classes at Steps on Broadway and Broadway Dance Center and coaches Angel Corella, Michele Wiles, Jared Matthews, Yuriko Kajiya and many of the next generation of ABT and New York City Ballet dancers can be found in his daily classes<P> Mr. Howard was profiled in People Magazine, Dance Magazine, Dance Teacher Magazine, Pointe Magazine and Dancer Magazine. He is listed in Who s Who in America, Who s Who in the World and The Art of Teaching Ballet...Ten Twentieth Century Masters which quotes its author, Gretchen Warren: David Howard s wizardry is something dancers feel in their bones. For years they have flocked to him in large numbers and today he is the best know, most popular ballet teacher working in America.

A very thorough, well demonstrated ballet instructional dvd. Mr. Howard's center work is terrific and he's put down some unique and very danceable combinations in this program ! Mr. Howard explains each
combination as the demonstrators ( who are marvelous by the way) slowly
follow his instruction. This is followed by each combination performed
full out to music. There is a tremendous amount of useful material, and
it is filmed very nicely. I found it very easy to follow and Mr.
Howard's voice alone is inspiring to any dancer taking his class.

This is a great instructional DVD for someone who has previous ballet experience and understands the terminology.The class is a good balance to my weekly workout! David Howard is a master teacher and is very thorough as he explains each exercise before it's performed. I found the combinations very useful, and there's a nice variety of turn and jump variations, as well as adage and allegro work. Plus, the dancers performing them are very talented, which helps give me an idea of what the final steps should look like.

I am a beginner ballet dancer, and this video is a lot of fun! There are lots of exercises and combinations to learn, but they are suited more for intermediate/advanced dancers. There are lots of terms to know, and lots of variations between each combination. Each combination is taught by running through the steps once from the back, and is then performed with music facing the camera. It's definitely worth the effort for beginners like me, but make sure you have lots of room to dance! I'd say a large living room would be suitable.
