International Ballet Institute aims to bring the highest levels of both classical ballet training to as many promising talents as possible. When a child, a talent, a dancer, is given the chance to develop their gifts in the realm of ballet, then a life is forever changed. Through consistent applied effort, focused discipline, and nurtured artistry comes mastery, and through mastery comes true self confidence. This allows a human being to actualize their highest selves while unknowingly giving all those around them permission to do the same.
THE DEEP POWER OF TRAINING & EDUCATION.
At IBI we recognize the deep power of this depth of training and education. It is a value that is immeasurable when producing the next generation of ballet artists, along with the next generation of citizens. IBI fosters education and character in their dancers, preparing them to be truly qualified to take themselves and the art form to the next level of artistic evolution.
Here we seek not only to introduce ballet to potential dancers, but to give those dancers a real chance at developing themselves as multi faceted dance artists and creators. Once they have developed their own gifts they will be equipped to lead the following generations to their own artistic heights, ensuring the futures of the dancers and the dance.
THE INSTITUTE’S CURRICULUM.
Daily ballet technique, pointe, acting for dancers, dance history, choreography composition, French Language, costume design and costume making, in addition to rehearsals for regular student performances that are offered to the public. In a focused and inspired environment the students study the many facets of their heritage as classical ballet dancers.
A BALLET CLASS PROVIDES A RIGOROUS FULL BODY WORKOUT.
From the audience a professional dancer’s perfect poise and graceful movements make dancing look easy, but in reality, the sweat is pouring and they are working hard!
A ballet class will target many different parts of the body. The arms, legs, back, core muscles, feet and ankles are all strengthened and toned. Regular ballet practice will also improve posture and balance, resulting in a long, lean and elegant figure. The physical benefits of ballet study will become noticeable within a few weeks of regular class attendance.
