With this series, professional dancer and instructor Jan Miller has created a comprehensive introduction that helps beginning students master the basic forms and positions -- a difficult yet crucial step toward proper execution of ballet's more complicated movements. The featured dancers take extra time to demonstrate commonly made errors along with the correct method, and the series' use of multiple camera angles, stop-action and slow-motion filming, and superimposed graphic illustrations insure clear, easy-to-follow instruction. The five sections in Volume 2 cover: pointing and using the foot; balancing on flat feet and demi-pointe; transferring weight while maintaining balance; relever and elever; and holding the barre.
