Performances & Events

Indiana Ballet Conservatory provides numerous performance opportunities for students of all ages within professional and student productions. Performing is a an crucial component of the overall dance education. Students gain invaluable experience from studio instruction, preparation periods, rehearsals in the theater, and full production performances. Performances offer chances for students to also learn first-hand the artistry, expression, and technical excellence expected of accomplished artists. From the moment of casting to the time they take their final bow, our dancers grow in their talents and their maturity.


Students at IBC will have the unique opportunity to perform works in the classical ballet repertoire, as well as original choreography by IBC artistic staff. Our performances are beloved by arts patrons from Indianapolis and the surrounding areas at local fairs and festivals and full productions at the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s Tobias Theater, where we are proud to showcase our full-length ballets!

The Nutcracker

Come experience the magic of Indiana’s premier Nutcracker tradition. Children and adults of all ages will be transformed by this heartwarming tale of a young girl and her beloved Nutcracker as she battles off evil and learns the value and resiliency of the human spirit. This variation is closest to that of the original Nutcracker Ballet that debuted over 100 years ago in Russia, so you won’t want to miss this timeless and beloved holiday favorite.

Staged by Alyona Yakovleva-Randall and based on the 1934 choreography of Vasily Vainonen.
