IBT Academy studios were designed and built for professional ballet training. Our 4,000 sq. ft state-of-the-art facility is divided into 2 large studios with top-of-the-line spring floors and high loft-style ceilings, an imporant requirement for a partnering rehearsal space.
Our Faculty is committed to providing individual attention to each student whether they are pursuing a professional career or dancing recreationally. Along with several levels of Ballet and Pointe classes we offer children’s Creative Movement, Character, and Contemporary (see in-depth Class Descriptions for details.)
There is also opportunity to perform in IBT's lavish annual Nutcracker held at two locations at the Ursinus College Kaleidoscope Theater and at Neumann University.
All students are trained in the famed Vaganova Method. Please take a few minutes to visit and explore the How We Teach page. Many of our graduates have gone on to dance in professional companies all around the world, others have been awarded scholarships to prestigious Universities.
IBT Academy offers many unique opportunities:
- Our Summer Intensive Program is considered one of the best in the US, with exceptional Russian Vaganova-style Teachers and international ballet stars,
- a regular MasterClass Series for groups of Intermediate and Pre-Professional Level students,
- an impressive Faculty of Guest Ballet Stars coaching students long-term and available for private classes,
- and sessions with our award-winning Choreographers
Picasso said, "The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls." That is why here at IBT we focus not just on technique but also on fine art of expression and elegant plasticity of movement—the cornerstones of Russian classical ballet.
