IBC offers a world-class Pre-Professional Program for students ages 8-19. Led by Founding Artistic Director Alyona Yakovleva-Randall and rooted in the Russian tradition, IBC’s program is based on the Vaganova method and is dedicated to elevating the artistry and technique of serious-minded students who strive for a well-rounded ballet education or a professional career in ballet.
Graduates of the Pre-professional program have accepted offers from professional companies and top university programs around the country. Students may contact the Admissions Director to arrange a visit and audition at our studio when classes are in session.
This program is divided into multiple levels:
Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4+
In addition, students gain performance experience in IBC’s two major annual productions and local festivals, one-on-one mentoring and instruction through optional private lessons for international competition preparation, along with career guidance and individualized attention from the IBC faculty within smaller class sizes. This program continues to grow in its prestige, and in just a few short years is now one of the most sought-after pre-professional programs for students seeking concentrated study from an unparalleled team of instructors.
