As Finis Jhung often says in class,
you either stand up, or you fall.
You either balance, or you don't.

It all comes from the way you do your barrework.

As you see this carefully constructed and minutely detailed barre work, Finis frequently asks Kelley Waddell of The American Ballet Theatre to see if she can continue doing an exercise with her hand off the barre.

Sometimes, he asks her to check and see that she's not sitting back on her heel, because he wants her to feel she's always ready to move from that position.
