Stuck at 5B-5C

Hey Guys,
I started climbing about a year ago and it went well. But now, I've been stuck at 5b-5c for months (that's 5.9-5.10 for our American fellow climbers). It feels like I'm on a "plateau" when it comes to climbing skills.
I have to say, I used to climb only once a week. It's only recently that we bumped it to twice.

is it normal to reach a plateau at some point? And do I simply have to continue climbing to get over it?

I think I still fail to use proper technique. Lastly, I saw a 10 year old climb a 6c and you could clearly see how he went through fluently.
My climbing friend, who is more experienced than me, jokingly said the kid climbs like a monkey (fluently, twisting his body like he should) while I climb too much like a leopard (using primarily arms and legs and too "rigidly").

I guess the only way to improve this, is to climb MOAR right?
