IBA's Summer of Dance is the perfect place to dance throughout the summer. Our Summer Intensive is specifically designed for professional dancers to elevate their dance training and technique, while our Summer Dance Camps give your artists a nurturing place to grow. The International Ballet Academy is where young artists taking their first class or adults living their passion can truly find their inner artists. Make our Academy your home and discover how dance can change your life.
This year, summer classes from our current curriculum will be available for dancers who want extra flexibility during the summer months.
July 3rd - August 12th, 2023

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 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.
