The 2021 summer program has officially come to an end.
It has been such a wonderful summer, not only for our academy but also for our dancers and faculty. We are incredibly thankful to have the opportunity to give our wonderful young artists the space to express their inner artist.
June 21 - July 30th, 2021
Ages 10 to Adult
Summer Intensives are designed to provide expert training through unique instruction under our Academy's distinguished faculty. Through class instruction, end-of-session conferences with the Artistic Director and Assistant Artistic Director, and through private instruction with IBA faculty, dancers develop a rock-solid foundation from which to build their technique. Our rigorous ballet training program is based on the Vaganova method, while non-ballet dance classes elevate a student's technique to new heights.
Classes are specifically designed to focus on precision of technique, increasing strength, and greater musicality and artistry. This program is essential for dancers preparing for a professional career.
Summer Intensive Classes will be held only in-person at our studio.
Audition is required for placement.
Current IBA Students are not required to audition.
