Progressing Ballet Technique
Beth is a fully-qualified Progressing Ballet Technique instructor.
Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is an innovative program from Australia, designed to help ballet students understand the depth of training muscle memory in achieving their personal best in classical ballet.
Specially designed pilates-style exercises are performed with the help of a Swiss ball, theraband, or small pilates ball, in order to improve students' strength, flexibility, alignment, and technique.
For ballet students, the control that is required to perform these exercises correctly quickly translates into improvements in their dancing, and students and teachers alike are often amazed at the results they see in class.
PBT can benefit non-dancers too, and Beth often uses slightly modified versions of these exercises in her personal training and Barre classes, in order to improve clients' core control, balance, posture, and alignment.
