Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT)

PBT was designed to train muscle memory and to promote key muscle activation to achieve the best training one can receive.

 

All our RAD ballet classes are supplemented with PBT exercises to reinforce students' ballet foundations. We believe it is important for dancers to think about how to move, to encourage proper muscle engagement and to prevent unwanted injuries.
