Company Class & Associate Programme 

with West End Stars James Lomas

Both programmes are designed for those students who are demonstrating outstanding achievement in one or more areas of their performing and who work hard in all their classes and want to consider a career in the industry. James Lomas (the first Billy Elliot in the West End) is leading our Associates Programme. With his industry experience and contacts, together we have created an programme which will rival some of the top dance/musical theatre schools in the country.

The Associate programme is for those who are focused on Musical Theatre. In all the sessions the students will get to work on improving their dance, singing, and acting. They will be taught how to select audition material which shows off their talent as well as audition technique.

The Company programme is for those who are focused on dancing. The weekly classes will involve conditioning and strengthening, and the students will take part in PBT (Progressive Ballet Technique) classes which Miss Jess and Miss Hannah have recently trained in. This programme will not cover any singing or acting, but it will allow them to develop their audition technique.

Students must audition to gain a place in these classes. For more information on how to audition, times and costs please contact us.

Progressing Ballet Technique

We are incredibly lucky to have two of our PSA Teachers as two fully qualified PBT Teachers Miss Jess and Miss Hannah. Lets take your dance training to the next level!

 What is PBT (Progressing Ballet Technique)?

Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is an innovative body-conditioning and strengthening program that has been designed to enhance students’ technique by focussing on training the muscle memory required in each exercise in all forms of dance. It is a unique training system using ballet-technique specific exercises to train skill acquisition in a graded and progressive manner from junior through to advanced levels. PBT helps teachers around the world prepare their students to receive the strength they need to achieve their personal best.

The program helps with injury prevention and rehabilitation and enhances the ability of athletes to perform at their best. It can be difficult for students to feel which muscles initiate the correct alignment in training. However, with the use of an exercise ball, the students gain a great sense of posture and weight-placement whilst feeling each correct muscle group working throughout each exercise, which then stays with them when whilst performing in dance or their chosen field of sport

PBT focuses on core strength, weight placement and alignment of the body with a gradual approach of carefully designed exercises and repetitions of these exercises that trigger their muscle memory. The program is designed with safe dance methodology to promote a long, healthy career and is now being taught by over 4000+ certified teachers worldwide and over 3500 schools globally have added PBT classes in their curriculum for students.

PBT is not only a program to improve technique in ballet dancers, it is now being appreciated and incorporated in training by all forms of dancers, athletes, physiotherapists and even footballers!
