Progressing ballet technique (pbt)
Our classes use the renowned Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT), which develops students’ core strength and muscle memory.
PBT is an innovative program developed by Marie Walton-Mahon for students to understand the depth of training muscle memory in achieving their personal best in classical ballet.
When regularly practiced, this program has had outstanding success. The use of muscle memory greatly improves students' understanding of core stability, weight placement and alignment. It can be difficult for students to feel which muscles initiate the correct alignment in ballet training. However, with the use of a fit ball continually mobile under their bodies, the students gain a sense of posture and weight-placement whilst feeling each correct muscle group.
