Dancers will be grouped into three divisions based on age and ability. Placement, which is non-negotiable, will be finalized within the first few days of classes.

Attendance at IBCSI may also serve as a student’s audition for the Pre-Professional Day Program. Students wishing to be evaluated during the summer for admittance into the Day Program may express their intent and interest to the Admissions or Administrative Director before or during the first week of classes.All interested students must attend an IBCSI Audition. Currently enrolled IBC students who meet the initial age requirements need not attend an audition, but should confirm with the school regarding the student’s eligibility prior to enrolling in SI.


Students are housed with host families during the summer, which are carefully selected by IBC. Fees start at $300 per week, which covers the students’ room & board, food, and transportation to and from the studio. Students may also opt to bring additional spending money for weekend activities, shopping and souvenirs, and other excursions.

IBC’s Young Dancers’ Intensive (YDI) gives serious young students the same well-rounded dance education that is offered in our Summer Intensive for older students, with consideration for the age-appropriate time and class content for ages 6+. YDI allows students to experience their own “mini-intensive” while receiving in-depth training in Ballet Technique, Pre-Pointe,  and Conditioning.

In addition, students spend time learning original choreography or pieces within IBC’s repertoire, providing the opportunity to learn and familiarize themselves with various styles of dance. This highly anticipated program has become an important cornerstone of the IBC summer experience and also provides a wonderful introduction for new students to the training and teaching style at IBC.

Special seminars may include nutrition, costume history, injury prevention, and stage makeup. Multiple mini intensives are encouraged in order to build upon technical elements and repertoire.
