Assessments occur in the spring each year as a fun way to show off what we've learned for the examiner. This is a no-observation session.

Progressing Dance Technique
Juliana Elliott
Fitness course to enhance ballet technique with proper muscle development and muscle memory. All forms of dance benefit from this carefully designed program. Find your core strength for better pirouettes, enjoy more control in allegros for clean and safer dancing. Minimize potential for injury or shorten recovery period for injury.

Please bring fitness ball (large enough to sit with knees level with hips) All other equipment provided (small balls, Therabands, etc)

Certified PBT teacher, Valerie Holgers and her esteemed teachers, Jen, Juliana and Anguelina take dancers through their exercises, adapting exercises as the class progresses. Adults are very welcome!

This level dives deeper into triggering muscle memory necessary for advanced choreography, such as multiple turns, strong battery, bigger leaps and soft controlled landings. Important to all dancers wanting to minimize injury, they strengthen the muscles that control turnout from the tops of the legs rather than crank a false turnout from the feet. Mobility of the spine using supporting muscles raises the level of artistry for the advanced dancer, so very important for today's dancer.

Per PBT website: "Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is an innovative body-conditioning and strengthening program developed by Marie Walton-Mahon for students to understand the depth of training muscle memory in achieving their personal best. One of the important elements used in the PBT method is muscle memory which helps to improve students' understanding of core stability, weight placement and alignment. Each exercise in the PBT program has been developed with care and guidance by Marie Walton-Mahon along with a team of physiotherapists."

Tuition is deeply discounted, cannot be combined with any other discounts or offers.

DRESS CODE: bare legs or pull convertible tights up to expose calves, or jazz/yoga pants, t-shirt, or leotard. Ladies, hair into low bun or pony tail. We spend quite a bit of time on the mat.

WITHDRAWALS & MISSED CLASSES: There will be no tuition adjustment for missed classes. However, makeups are gladly encouraged. Withdrawals require a 30-day written notice to dance@abcbend.com.
