IBC offers a world-class Pre-Professional Program for students ages 8-19. Led by Founding Artistic Director Alyona Yakovleva-Randall and rooted in the Russian tradition, IBC’s program is based on the Vaganova method and is dedicated to elevating the artistry and technique of serious-minded students who strive for a well-rounded ballet education or a  professional career in ballet.  Graduates of the Pre-professional program have accepted offers from professional companies and top university programs around the country.

May 27-June 20 (4 weeks)

IBC offers ongoing summer evening classes for all Preparatory & Pre-Professional levels to ensure students receive a consistency in training and education throughout the summer.

Summer is the prime time to focus on improvement in ballet in all levels; without the added stress of school or other commitments, students are able to better concentrate on their technique and make meaningful improvements prior to the fall semester. It is also highly recommended that all Pre-Professional Division students attend a minimum of two-three weeks in Summer Intensive and Prep 3/4 students attend one-two weeks in Young Dancer Intensive.

In order to accommodate for active summer lifestyles, families may register for individual classes or for the entire session. Typically, classes are offered once per week for Preparatory levels, and up to 3 times per week for Pre-Professional students during the 4-6 week summer session.
