NEW! Open Progressing Ballet Technique Class

Tuesdays
6:45 - 7:45 pm

This conditioning class is open to all students who have an interest in developing strength, control and muscular awareness to support their dance classes. It involves use of exercise balls of different sizes and therabands.

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.

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 while feeling each correct muscle group.

Each exercise has been developed with care and guidance with a team of physiotherapists.
