Product Description

We taught you beginning ballet moves in "Ballet 101, A Beginner’s Class" (ASIN: B0002XQKOK) and "Ballet 201, Beyond the Basics" (ASIN: B0002XQKOU). We added new moves so that you could dance combinations in “Ballet 101 & 201, Combinations 1” (ASIN: B000ECX6KU). This is the fourth addition to the series and picks-up from where the first 3 DVDs leave off, giving students an opportunity to progress from the beginning level and use what they have learned. After warming-up and stretching, an instructor uses the ballet moves you’ve learned in the first 3 videos, and adds new moves so that she can choreograph and pace you through a new set dance combinations found in ballet classes and performances throughout the world: Adagio, Waltz, Petite Allegro, Grand Allegro and Reverence. This "Ballet 101 & 201, Combinations 2" DVD (ASIN: B000ECX6L4) focuses on choreography, stage presence, and performance quality. New ballet steps and trickier footwork are introduced to make the combinations unique and promote development. Although ballet is a graceful workout that can improve carriage, increase flexibility and strengthen the body, this is not designed to be a workout tape, and please note that the instructor is facing (mirroring) you for the dance instruction. Combine the moves that you’ve learned, and DANCE!

This is an easy-to-follow, hands-on series that is endorsed by private instructors. Ballet terms & definitions from this series can be printed off of the abridgeclub.com web site. Recommended before this DVD:  "Ballet 101, A Beginner’s Class" (ASIN: B0002XQKOK) and/or "Ballet 201, Beyond the Basics" (ASIN: B0002XQKOU), depending upon your experience. Beginners should always start with Ballet 101, A Beginner’s Class.”  Also available is the third DVD in the series: "Ballet 101 & 201, Combinations 1" (ASIN: B000ECX6KU).

It’s the perfect series if you...
…don’t have the time or money to take a formal ballet class.
…don’t have access to dance classes in your area.
…know beginning ballet moves and want to DANCE.
…need a practice guide without the pressure.
…are looking for the perfect gift for an adult or an older child.

From the Contributor

This DVD is the fourth in the series, and is for someone ready to combine beginning dance moves and dance combinations. If you are totally new to Ballet, you should begin with our first "Ballet 101, A Beginner's Class" DVD (ASIN: B0002XQKOK)," which will introduce the barre exercises to you in a simple format that is reserved for beginners. The dance at the end of the first beginner's DVD is choreographed, marked and then performed to a short classical music piece. Mature children should be supervised by an adult so as not to acquire any bad dance habits.

Once you feel comfortable with "Ballet 101, A Beginner's Class ", you can move on to "Ballet 201, Beyond the Basics" (ASIN: B0002XQKOU), which will give you a quick review of the barre exercises that you have already learned, without the verbal instruction, and add on from there. Both DVDs have stretching and warm-up, so you shouldn't have to go back and forth between the two classes.

The "Ballet 101 & 201, Combinations" series would be your next step up. These "Combinations" DVDs focus mostly on choreography and actual DANCING, using the moves you learned in the first 2 beginning DVDs. The first combination DVD is "Ballet 101 & 201, Combinations 1 (ASIN: B000ECX6KU)." If you like it, then you can also try " Ballet 101 & 201, Combinations 2" DVD (ASIN: B000ECX6L4). One DVD builds upon the other, but both are designed for the novice. Some new moves and dances are introduced, and the dances are challenging, without being boring or too complicated. They are presented in the same manner as the finales on the first 2 DVDs in the series, using classical music pieces, mirroring (facing) the instructor. We have tried to avoid moves that would require more one-on-one instruction to properly complete. Even knowing the moves in the series, it would take a beginner some repetition and concentration to complete all of the dances that are taught. You may have to pause and rewind on occasion to keep up. We provide slow motion for you on the trickier steps, but it's recommended that you only try to tackle one dance at time and then progress on to the next. As a reminder, you will need some dancing space in your living room. Good luck, and enjoy.
