I have heard that the Finis Jhung DVDs are good.

Ballet Conrad is on YouTube and they also have ballet tutorials and classes on their website. His approach is different, but you can see the difference in his wife from when she first started ballet (as an adult) to now. He teaches his son on some videos as well.

Thanks y'all for the suggestions - keep 'em coming. I might should have added that streaming suggestions are fine. Also - I am an over 60 beginner if that makes any difference in your suggestions.

I love sleek technique! Thanks to amylm for turning me on to these. They have a free 7-day trial. I've been doing these a lot the last couple of months. https://www.sleekballetfitness.com

I love the ballet routines on Les Mills as well. It's more follow along and less instruction with modern music. They also have a free trial. https://www.lesmills.com/us/

I enjoy many of the videos on the Lazy Dancer Tips youtube channel. I haven't tried her subscription service, but there's probably more ballet there. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbU...mBbZ9ZjKi9IRVQ

And finally, Misty Copeland has a MasterClass which is totally on my todo list. She is such a phenomenon! https://www.masterclass.com

This is my suggestion, but note that the second volume is much more difficult than the first, IMHO. I think the second is better for someone with at least a tiny bit of ballet training, even if it was just as a kid.
