PBT Associates UK

A programme designed to help children improve their ballet strength and technique.

With the support of Marie Walton Mahon (Founder and Creator of PBT), PBT Associate UK was created to offer students a further level of PBT training in addition to their regular dance school classes and allow them to reach their full potential. Students do not need to already be studying PBT in order to attend the programme. PBT Associates UK is open to all students with a keen interest in improvin

The sun is shining, the park view should be lovely and I know the students will be hard working.

See you soon Birmingham!

PBT associates is a programme for all students looking to improve their ballet strength and technique. To work towards safer, stronger and better knowledge and understanding of technique. Enrolling now for September 2024.

Alyssa is one of three of my Junior Associates off to vocational schools in September.
Her work ethic, feeling and musicality shines through in everything she does.

If your dancer will be in Year 5 or above in September please drop me a message as the programme is open for enrolments for next year!

PBT Associates is not just a programme for students looking at future vocational training, it is the missing piece in their jigsaw to improving technique and strength for all students to fulfil their true potential.

What a treat this was yesterday, I was hugely impressed by how quickly and well the girls picked up this repertoire. Lovely to see them working together and friendships building too.

The seniors are showing such great improvement in strength, so rather than a ballet class, today Miss Sue coached them in the Raymonda Pas de Trois, Daydream. Lovely to see them working so hard and putting all the good practices into place.

We’ve had a fantastic day at associates today. Our patron and ballet teacher Miss Susan Lucas was with us. A lovely opportunity for the students to learn from her wealth of experience.
In PBT the juniors have been working on arm and upper body strength. Miss Sue was showing her astute eye for detail today on line, flow and placement. Such careful considered work, well done everyone.

Due to a hugely heavy workload of music cutting and choreography to do this holidays I’m just doing a few extra/longer group classes.
Anyone interested in future private lessons do please get in touch.

For those people on my waiting list for regular private lessons, due to two of my present pupils successfully auditioning and off to White Lodge and Elmhurst in September I will be in touch soon about possible times.

Our seniors stretching out at the end of class.
The key to classical ballet technique is a secure well aligned neutral pelvis.
Here the pelvic alignment is maintained throughout this exercise by the sacrum evenly distributed on the fusion ball.

Is PBT the missing piece in your training… Whether you aspire to vocational training or just want to be the best you can be, PBT is the key to training safely and intelligently.
Once there is an in-dept understanding and feeling of muscle activation the technique will fly.

Weekly training is hugely beneficial.

My Wednesday zoom class is suitable for students in year 9 and above with PBT experience. (Any students interested who are in year 8 but with experience please get in touch so I can check if the class would be suitable for you)

Message me to find out more.

I’m sure these young talented students are all reliving last weekend tonight. It gave me a huge sense of pride to know I’m part of their training programmes.
Lovely to see them do what they love and aspire to do in the future. Wherever that journey leads them, experiences like this are wonderful.

Well done everyone.

At PBT associates UK we offer monthly intense PBT sessions with a once a term ballet master class lead by Miss Susan Lucas. This allows the students the opportunity to put into practice the things they’ve prepared in their PBT lessons.
In the final master class of the year the students learn some repertoire which also has focus around the techniques we’ve been working on.

Don’t miss the opportunity to progress your technique with this revolutionary programme and a carefully designed associates programme which truly follows the ethos of ‘Taking PBT to the Barre’

By taking the time to fully understand the muscles used in each movement and to strengthen those pathways the technical improvement is outstanding.

I am particularly encouraging students in school years 5-8 to get in touch to come along for an insight day.

A well-aligned neutral pelvis is non-negotiable for healthy, injury free dance practice.

This exercise deepens and secures the understanding of this crucial alignment.

Perfecting technical alignments prevents injury, this exercise will help you leave those tucking or arching bad habits behind.

The seniors were all looking so strong in this Grand Battement exercise in our February classes.
The ball is an excellent lie detector for a neutral pelvis and having practiced the finding neutral pelvis exercise earlier in the class these girls were nailing it!

There are spaces still available at associates, get in touch if you would like to come along for an experience day so you can see for yourself how this revolutionary programme will enhance your ballet training.

Thank you also to our patron Chris Hobson for the perfect track! modern ballet studio melodies

Following the PBT ethos of ‘feeling before form’ the junior associates had great fun with this buddy jeté exercise and then loved doing some free jeté from the corner to continue the feeling of freedom and flight.

Do you have a dancer who’s wanting to improve their classical strength and technique, especially if they’re thinking of vocational training next year.
Get in touch as I am keen to invite year 5 and 6 children along for experience sessions.
