IBA offers several options for dancers who want to continue their dance study during the summer months.
For students ages 9 and up who dance at an intermediate or advanced level, IBA offers an eight-week summer intensive program. This program focuses on intensive classical training and is designed to challenge and encourage the student. Classes in ballet technique, pointe, partnering, variations, jazz, modern, pilates and yoga are combined with seminars focusing on proper nutrition and injury prevention. The goal is to provide opportunities for a dancer to grow both technically and artistically.
In addition to the summer intensive program, IBA offers evening classes during the summer. More information here.
