Although he talks about placement of the body and arms, I wouldn't recommend this video. The girl's hips are tilted down so she "sticks out". She has a sway back. Her elbows are dropped so her back muscles aren't held. Her feet are over turned out and there are clear video moments of her feet going in one direction while the knees are going in another direction. Ouch and what damage as well. Her a la seconde when she lifts her leg side is completely turned in. I mean the heel is facing the back of the room. So the beautiful first position is not coming from the hip joint like it should but unnaturally from screwing her knees and ankles. To me she is a mess. She is so stiff she might as well be a doll. I don't think she could dance because she is over stressed with technique. I hope she can still walk.
I hear that some of his other videos are good. This was the first I ever saw and I am really disappointed.
This is a class that feels better than it looks. In fact, it feels good enough to make me use it to practice with despite the obvious disadvantage of having to stop/replay the barre exercises in order to work both sides. This wouldn't matter for its target audience of dance teachers looking for tips on how to use the musical selections on the corresponding album to structure their classes to best advantage. The pace of the music is slow, something Americans, always in a hurry, sometimes complain of in Russian ballet classes even at much more advanced levels than this beginner-intermediate class, but it works for me, as does the added slowing effect occasioned by Roudnev's many comments, corrections and explanations.. I've been away from ballet for a while, know more than I can actually do at this point, and Roudnev's attention to every detail provides useful reminders, as the slower pace gives more opportunity to notice whether I'm actually getting it right. The result is that... Read more
I gave this video 3 stars although it doesn't deserve it from the visuals...only the theory Dmitri is talking about. Unfortunately his student is not able to follow his instructions...not because she doesn't try but because she can't.......which makes me even feel sorry for this little girl in writing this review. The little girl is trying very hard to execute what Dmitri wants ...but all is forced and it is quite painful to see her trying to keep her balance in full turn out which she can't manage and see her sticking her 'bum' out to compensate. Ditto her arms ... since she doesn't have the turnout she's 'grabbing' with her arms which means her elbows are permanently dropped even though he keeps telling her to 'rest them lightly on a table top'. Pity since all the other videos Dmitri has produced are great - Partnering Secrets, Ballet Class Vols V and VI as well as Ballet Class in Russia. Regarding Ballet Class V and VI he uses Amercian professional dancers (Joffrey Ballet)... Read more
