What PBT students are saying...

"I love PBT! Training your muscles in a way that applies so specifically to dance has been such an eye opening experience for me.  The way Rachel cares for her students and creates and environment of trust and cooperation is everything and instructor should be.  When she uses her talents to teach and PBT--the muscle memory comes and progress is natural.  I have seen this happen in my own dance and also in my young daughter" 
Melissa (age 37) and Macy (age 8), ID

"Rachel's PBT classes are an excellent addition to my ballet classes.  With the PBT exercises, I have experienced greater awareness in my body alignment and pathways of movement.  PBT exercises also allow me to strengthen certain muscles, including turnout.

Rachel is patient and nurturing yet she challenges me. WIth Rachel's guidance, I feel safe to explore the edges of my body's ability"               
Anna, CA

"I have trained in dance for 18 years now and participating in PBT with Rachel was revolutionary when I was at a point I felt myself at a plateau in my technique while also fighting off chronic injuries.  With an intense workload of 10-13 hours of training a day, 4-5 days a week, PBT was part of what helped me navigate my injuries and actually progress in my training. I felt a huge connection between my Pilates and PBT training.  The engagement, length, and space I am able to create in my body has been so expansive with this work.  There were times when I would have to sit out due to a severe pelvic injury, but PBT was there as another option to stay safe while strengthening.  This allowed me to rehabilitate and bounce back faster than you would imagine.  I would encourage any dancer to stop simply "spot treating" your technique and experience the full body engagement of PBT work"

"I think it's wonderfully beneficial how ballet concepts that have been practiced for hundreds of years can now be informed by what we know about the body and how it learns today.

It amazed me how doing just a few minutes of PBT before going into a standard ballet class seemed to dramatically inform my technique.  Personally, I've never felt more turned out than I have after a good PBT session." 
Mandy (age 20), ID

"Rachel's PBT classes really helped me better understand how to properly engage my muscles during ballet class.  This new information changed the way I prepare for and take class in a way that better suits MY body, and because of this, I have both seen and felt great improvement in my personal practice!  Not only has the strength I've gained from PBT helped in my ballet classes, but also with contemporary, modern, and jazz!  Rachel's clear instruction, individual and group feedback was game changing.  I'll definitely take more from her when I can!" 
Taylor (age 26), B.S. in Dance, UT
"These classes are amazing, challenging and informative.  They help you discover body parts you never knew existed.  Kidding aside, Rachel fine tunes exercises to encourage you to develop strength and control.  Whether in your core, turnout, feet, legs and arms; all parts of the body are utilized and bring better definition to your practice.  I actually use several of the exercises and techniques in my Barre class at my gym.  My students are always in awe of how just shifting one or two inches in an exercise can drastically affect the movement.  It is so cool!  Rachel is a wonderful instructor, after a few classes you will see why."
