Throwback to The First Weeks
of The Pandemic
It is hard to believe IBT Academy have now been operating in pandemic mode for almost a year.
I’m so grateful to IBT Academy as they have been and continue to be so helpful and encouraging throughout the tough pandemic time. The school was so kind to lend me a piece of marley (dance floor) and a ballet barre, to enable me to practice at home, allowing me to creating a setting similar to what I’d have if I were in a studio. Director of IBT Academy was very proactive when the lockdown started. She immediately organized and started hosting a variety of Zoom classes for all levels. And the Faculty hosting IBT online classes were top tier ballet stars.
I found that although a lot of us didn’t have access to large spaces at home, the teachers recognized this and took this as an opportunity to really tune up our footwork and artistry.
My jumps have actually improved (even though I haven’t been able to work on them in a while) because of the strength I gained thanks to the IBT Zoom classes. I so appreciate being a part of the family IBT Academy has created!
