PBT - Progressing Ballet Technique - With Natalie

Studio 2021

Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is an innovative body-conditioning and strengthening program that has been designed to enhance students' technique by focussing on training the muscle memory required in each exercise in all forms of dance. It is a unique training system using ballet-technique specific exercises to train skill acquisition in a graded and progressive manner from junior through to advanced levels. PBT helps teachers around the world prepare their students to receive the strength they need to achieve their personal best.

****A large yoga ball is recommended for this class. A thick cushion on top of a chair may be substituted.****

The program helps with injury prevention and rehabilitation and enhances the ability of athletes to perform at their best. It can be difficult for students to feel which muscles initiate the correct alignment in training. However, with the use of an exercise ball, the students gain a great sense of posture and weight-placement whilst feeling each correct muscle group working throughout each exercise, which then stays with them when whilst performing in dance or their chosen field of sport

PBT focuses on core strength, weight placement and alignment of the body with a gradual approach of carefully designed exercises and repetitions of these exercises that trigger their muscle memory. The program is designed with safe dance methodology to promote a long, healthy career and is now being taught by over 4000+ certified teachers worldwide and over 3500 schools globally have added PBT classes in their curriculum for students.

PBT is not only a program to improve technique in ballet dancers, it is now being appreciated and incorporated in training by all forms of dancers, athletes, physiotherapists and even footballers!

How to optimise your experience at Virtual Studio 2021:

Please dial in 5 minutes before your class and enter the waiting room until your instructor admits you
Please have water to hand
If its a Barre class you will need the back of a high chair, table or counter top to use as a barre
You may find a towel or yoga mat more comfortable for floor work
If you have yoga blocks or resistance bands there will be modifications and options for using these as well
Some classes will have optional progressions using weights, bands and either soft gym balls or tennis balls so if you wish to add those progressions please bring any equipment you have

All pets welcome... our Fitness Feline Archie is looking forward to meeting student’s pets online

Please test your camera angle to make sure I can see you while you’re working if you’d like guidance through class

New students: I will be in touch to arrange a quick catch up on any injuries or physical needs before class.
Existing students: If anything has changed in your health or fitness level please let me know ahead of time so content is prepared.

*** Please note it is necessary to have your video on at least at the start of the class for introductions to each other and preferably during the rest of class to allow me to keep you safe from injury. ***
