Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is an innovative body-conditioning and strengthening program that has been designed to enhance students' technique by focusing on training the muscle memory required in each exercise in all forms of dance. It is a unique training system using ballet-technique specific exercises to train skill acquisition in a graded and progressive manner.
The program helps with injury prevention and rehabilitation and enhances the ability of dancers to perform at their best. It can be difficult for students to feel which muscles initiate the correct alignment in training. However, with the use of an exercise ball, the students gain a great sense of posture and weight-placement whilst feeling each correct muscle group working throughout each exercise, which then stays with them when performing in dance or their chosen field of sport.
Progressing Ballet Technique Classes are designed for the Intermediate to Advanced level ballet or contemporary dancer and is taught by a PBT certified instructor.
