Safe dance training has been a passion of Marie’s as an educator for over 4 decades. It is sometimes difficult for students to feel what muscles initiate the correct alignment in ballet their training. However, as the fit ball is continually mobile under the student’s’ body it gives the students a proprioception for their posture and weight placement whilst feeling each correct muscle groups. Each exercise has been developed  with care and guidance.  The programs have received positive feedback from teachers’ and students worldwide.


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 over 40 years 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 over 12 years.



KJS Ballet Academy have been following the PBT training program over the past year and are excited about offering this program to students Ballet 2A and up. There are specific class plans that the teacher will be using for training the core muscles, intrinsic feet strength, port de bras, developpes, proper arabesque alignment, flexibility and so much more. The goal is for students to be able to feel stronger and confident about their technique. They will have a better understanding of how the muscles work when they are dancing.
