Washington Ballet Progressing Ballet Technique Workshop with Jennifer Buchanan
February 22, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Monday, repeating until March 22, 2021
Join TWSB faculty member and certified Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) teacher, Jennifer Buchanan, for a 5-week workshop dedicated to dancer conditioning. PBT uses ballet-technique specific exercises to strengthen and build muscle memory. This training is useful for injury prevention and rehabilitation, building core strength, and finding weight placement and alignment.
This workshop is open to students of all levels. We strongly recommend enrolling in the full 5 weeks, if possible.
The following items will be used in the workshop: Exercise Ball (also known as a Swiss Ball or Fit Ball), Fusion Ball (also known as a Soft Stability Ball or Pilates Soft Ball. A Soft Toy Ball can also be used), Resistance Band (also known as a TheraBand). Read more about these three items on the PBT website.
Participants should also bring a yoga mat and/or towel to class and wear clothing that can be easily rolled up to the knee.
Mondays, February 22 – March 22, 7:30-8:30PM ET
Location: Virtual Zoom Studio
Cost: $60 for the full 5-week session; $13 per class
