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.
There are specific class plans for PBT and Pre-pointe that the teacher will be using for training the core muscles, intrinsic foot strength, port de bras, proper body alignment, flexibility and so much more. The goal is for students to be able to feel stronger, confident and have a better understanding of how the muscles work when they are dancing.
