  1. If you’re looking to improve your dancers technique and strength then PBT is an excellent place to start. Introducing PBT Associates UK - the fist and only PBT associates programme. Starting on Sunday. Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is an innovative body-conditioning and strengthening programme to enhance students technique and is hugely valuable especially for classical ballet students. With the full support of Marie Walton-Mahon, the creator and founder of PBT, my Associate programme has been created to provide classes for talented students to expand upon their current training. Associate classes are held at the MAC in Birmingham, there will also be an optional weekly zoom lesson on a Wednesday. As a level 3 certified teacher I also hold both private and group classes on zoom and at the Spirit Studio in Gloucester. PBT Associates is offering an initial set of open classes, 11th September, 9th October, 13th November before Auditions take place on the 11th December for the programme beginning in January 2023. You don’t have to be able to attend all of the open classes to apply. There are still places available, we are initially running at two levels: Junior Associates - School Yrs 5-8 11.30am-12.45pm - PBT 12.45-2.00pm - Ballet Senior Associates - School Yrs 9+ 12.45-2.00pm - PBT 2.00-3.15pm - Ballet Ballet classes are taught by RBS SA teacher Sue Lucas, and former BRB dancer Alicia Nelson.

  2. PBT is a tried and proven way of vastly improving students ballet technique through carefully designed exercises working the deep muscles responsible for secure hold of technique. PBT Associates UK is a new programme opening in Birmingham in September 2022 ‘Taking PBT to the barre'. A structured ballet class will follow a PBT class where the same focus is followed throughout, allowing the dancer to put the muscle usage into place straight away. PBT Faculty Ellie Wright, Level 3 Gold Elite PBT Certified Teacher. Classical faculty Susan Lucas (Former Birmingham Royal Ballet Senior Soloist and RBS SA teacher) and Alicia Nelson (Former Birmingham Royal Ballet dancer). Three months (Sept - Nov) of open classes will be followed by a Classical Ballet Class audition (December) for the programmes official start in January 2023. This programme is fully supported by Marie-Walton Mahon (Founder and Creator of PBT) and her team in Australia.
