AABD also incorporates PBT for dancers ages 7 and up. "Progressing Ballet Technique is a unique and essential approach to the art form that is ballet. For the longevity, safety, knowledge and preservation of the art, to come across progressive ballet technique is visionary and something all young dancers should be aware of and I urge them to embrace this revolutionary support system." - Stephanie Williams, American Ballet Theater
