PROGRESSING BALLET TECHNIQUE (PBT)

For ages 10-17 years
No Prerequisite Required

Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is an innovative body conditioning and strengthening program that has been designed to enhance students’ technique on training the muscle memory required in each exercise in all forms of dance.  It is unique training system using ballet-technique specific exercises to train skill acquisition in a graded and progressive manner for all levels of dance.  PBT helps prepare students to receive the strength they need to achieve their personal best.

The program helps with injury prevention and rehabilitation.  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.

PBT focuses on core strength, weight placement and alignment of the body with gradual approach of carefully designed exercises and repetitions of these exercises that trigger their muscle memory.  PBT is not only a program to improve technique in ballet dancers, it is now being appreciated and incorporated in training by all forms of dancers, athletes, physiotherapists and even football players!
