From the PBT website:
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. PBT helps teachers around the world prepare their students to receive the strength they need to achieve their personal best.
The program helps with injury prevention and rehabilitation and enhances the ability of athletes to perform at their best. It can be difficult for students to feel which muscles initiate the correct alignment in training. However, with the use of an exercise ball, the students gain a great sense of posture and weight-placement whilst feeling each correct muscle group working throughout each exercise, which then stays with them when whilst performing in dance or their chosen field of sport
PBT focuses on core strength, weight placement and alignment of the body with a gradual approach of carefully designed exercises and repetitions of these exercises that trigger their muscle memory. The program is designed with safe dance methodology to promote a long, healthy career and is now being taught by over 4000+ certified teachers worldwide and over 3500 schools globally have added PBT classes in their curriculum for students.
PBT is not only a program to improve technique in ballet dancers, it is now being appreciated and incorporated in training by all forms of dancers, athletes, physiotherapists and even footballers!
Progressing Contemporary Technique is an innovative program created by Adam Blanch in conjunction with Progressing Ballet Technique, devised as a series of functional exercises to help you explore and develop freedom of movement. To bring awareness to the importance of finding articulation through your body and allowing that discovery to give you that enhanced sense of mobility in contemporary dance.
PCT focuses on activating muscles groups through a process of utilising resistance and strength training. Our aim is to help you achieve a sense of moving with resistance, but never a tension in the body. With spine articulation being a major component of contemporary dance, we strive to give you a solid foundation from which the spine can explore its fullest range of suppleness and flexibility through the co-ordination of breath and musicality.
Each exercise has been specifically developed to focus on the fundamental elements of contemporary dance. This including contraction articulation, variations of transfer of weight and giving weight, floor connection, resistance stretching/strengthening, compression and expansion, and so on.
The structure of the program itself has been designed to progress in complexity, yet offering a wide range of modifications, to ensure dancers of all levels can participate, challenge themselves and benefit from this innovative program.
This is your discovery and we hope you benefit from this journey and enjoy your newfound sense of freedom in your movement.
