Progressing Ballet Technique is an innovative program developed by Marie Walton-Mahon for students to understand the depth of training muscle memory in achieving their personal best in classical ballet.

Marie has been known for her creative teaching skills for almost 4 decades and has trained many professional dancers and teachers’ worldwide. She has experimented with outstanding success the use of muscle memory to improve students understanding of core stability, weight placement and alignment for many decades.

Safe Dance training has been a passion of Marie’s as an educator for over 40 years. It is difficult for students to feel what muscles initiate the correct alignment in ballet training, however, as the fit ball is continually mobile under the students’ body, it gives the students a sense of posture and weight –placement whilst feeling each correct muscle group. Each exercise has been developed with care and guidance with a team of physiotherapists

We have seen a massive transformation in our dancers that have joined our PBT classes- it’s makes a massive impact in technique across all styles and genres and have a deeper understand of their bodies, muscles and base ballet technique.

This class is compulsory for our Competitive dancers as it is so vital for technique improvement.



We have two PBT levels:

  • Intermediate PBT Tue 6.15pm
