Progressing Ballet Technique 8 - 19 yrs
Progressing Ballet Technique is designed specifically to address the muscle groups that are crucial to perform ballet technique safely and effectively. This is a wonderful tool to add to our student’s education in ballet. The program specifically addressed weaknesses that are very common to students and are more difficult to tackle. These weaknesses can take a long time to address when the students is only taking ballet. Most of the exercises are performed on an exercise ball or with a resistance band - the exercises are carefully developed to help students find correct muscle engagement without gripping. The use of the ball also gives the dancers instant feedback. How? It is difficult to perform the exercises incorrectly and keep the ball from rolling away!
