Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT)
What is PBT?
Progressing Ballet Technique 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.
Safe dance training has been a passion of Marie’s as an educator for over 4 decades. It is sometimes difficult for students to feel what muscles initiate the correct alignment in ballet training. However, as the fit ball is continually mobile under the student’s’ body it gives the students a proprioception for their posture and weight placement whilst feeling each correct muscle groups. Each exercise has been developed with care and guidance. The programs have received positive feedback from teachers’ and students worldwide.
After continual success in monitoring the student’s’ progress in these integral areas of ballet training, Marie was encouraged by teachers to produce her programs and share her PBT technique. The programs are wonderful teaching tools that enhances ballet training.
These schools are just some of the schools involved in the PBT training: Advanced level students from the National College of Dance, McDonnald College, Joanne Grace Ballet School, Teresa Johnson Ballet School, Tanya Pearson Classical Coaching Academy, Studio Tibor and the Vocational Ballet College NSW. Tutors Lauren McGrath and Callie Roberts
There are specific class plans that the teacher will be using for training the core muscles, intrinsic feet strength, port de bras, developpes, proper arabesque alignment, flexibility and so much more. The goal is for students to be able to feel stronger and confident about their technique. They will have a better understanding of how the muscles work when they are dancing.
