What Is PBT Training?
Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is an innovative body-conditioning and strengthening program that has been designed to enhance students' classical technique. The technique focuses on training the muscle memory required in each fundamental, classical exercise, and translates that muscle memory to all forms of dance. It is a unique program that helps students with core strength, weight placement and alignment. The program promotes injury prevention and rehabilitation while enhancing the abilities of dancers and athletes to perform at their best.
How does PBT improve a dancer's technique?
It can be difficult for students to feel which muscles initiate the correct alignment in a standard dance class. However, with the use of an exercise ball, fusion ball and theraband, the students gain a great sense of posture and weight-placement whilst feeling each correct muscle group working through the exercises. This correct muscle activation then translates to their dancing. PBT focuses on core strength, weight placement and alignment of the body with a gradual approach of carefully designed exercises followed by repetitions of these exercises that trigger muscle memory.
Is PBT safe?
Yes! The program is designed with safe dance methodology to promote a long, healthy career. PBT is now being taught by over 6000+ certified teachers worldwide and over 4500 companies and schools globally have added PBT classes in their curriculum for students. PBT is not only a program to improve classical technique in ballet dancers, it is now being appreciated and incorporated in training by all forms of dancers, athletes and fitness enthusiasts around the world.
