Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT)


Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is a program developed by Marie Walton-Mahon of Australia with guidance from a team of dance medicine physical therapists. It uses the concepts of proprioception, imagery, and muscle memory to improve and strengthen fundamental aspects of classical ballet technique. PBT benefits ballet students to professional dancers alike, using bands and balls to facilitate correct muscle activation in ballet movements. It aims to minimize compensatory movement patterns, and maximize safe technique with a focus on strengthening core and posture. 
Official PBT classes are taught by a Certified PBT instructor who has undergone an extensive certification process. The Ballet School Performing Arts is proud to offer this cross training program to students in the Advanced Class, and annually during summer intensives.
