New Classes at RDA

We are excited to add a new class to our Roseville Timetable.

Progressing Ballet Technique – Ball Class

Friday, 5:45-6:45pm

For Year 2 students & older

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.

Students will need a theraband band and an Exercise Ball for this class, also know as a ‘Swiss Ball’ or ‘Fit Ball’

Using your height to size up your ball

When you stand next to an exercise ball, it should be even or slightly above your knee level. The best way to size up your ball is by sitting on it. When you sit on the ball, knees should be bent at a 90-degree angle and your thighs should be parallel or even with the floor.

Find your height and see which ball size you should try first.

Height                Recommended Ball Size

142cm                 45cm ball

142-160cm          55cm ball

160-178cm          65cm ball

178-193cm          75cm ball

 

 

We will also be adding some extra Ballet classes to our Friday RDA timetable:

Ballet 7, 4:15-5:15pm

Ballet 7 Pointe, 5:15-5:45pm

 

To enrol just email lcda@lcda.com.au
