TUITION & REGISTRATION
July 25th - August 12th, 2022
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.
The 2022 IBA Summer Intensive will be held in collaboration with students from the Kiev Choreographic College. Boys and girls ages 14 and up will join our Academy under the tutelage of Guest Teachers Alexander Stoyanov and Katerina Kukhar of the National Opera of Ukraine.
