Progressing ballet technique
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.
Contemporary is a style of expressive dance that has its own unique technique. It is very expressive and uses emotions and storytelling. Creative dance can often be mistakenly called contemporary. As our classes are true Contemporary it is not suitable for young children and we expect our students to be Grade 4 ballet before they start this class. Modern is a much better choice for younger students.
