Intensive Dance Program Ages 10-18
 

"Immerse yourself in Dance" 

A rare and truly life-altering experience, students of the Intensive Dance Program will perform choreography to an audience of ballet patrons in a showcase production. Utilizing a curriculum based on the Vaganova method that was created in St. Petersburg, Russia, dancers are trained in an environment that focuses on professional development. Combined with American Jazz, Contemporary, and Modern dance styles, as well as a full suite of enrichment programs, IBA dancers gain the unique ability to study a wide range of disciplines in a highly-developed professional dance environment. The Intensive Dance Program is designed to create a strong foundation from which a dancer may grow towards a career in professional ballet.
