Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is an revolutionary program which utilizes fitness balls and resistance bands to enhance ballet technique, develop core stability, proper weight placement and alignment. Benefits of PBT include: increased muscles memory, improved flexibility, strengthened technique, improved posture, and understanding of ones body. Classes are taught by PBT Certified instructors.
It is sometimes difficult for students to feel what muscles initiate the correct alignment in ballet. 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. PBT has received positive feedback from teachers’ and students worldwide. Students gain and an understanding of the correct muscle groups that assist each movement, to activate “turn out”, enhance “adage movements”, accelerate “allegro”, activate “batterie”, and control landings. The program also has advantages during rehabilitation from injury.
