Based on a 300-year legacy of excellence, The Vaganova curriculum that IBC employs provides ballet students with a structured, scientific dance methodology, and encompasses a holistic pedagogical approach that goes beyond basic technique. The educational depth of IBC’s program not only provides for a broad exposure to many different dance forms including more contemporary styles built upon a classical base, but also inculcates a broader understanding and appreciation of art in general. Students will be educated in music, theater history, ballet history, and ballet theory. This kind of complete, comprehensive dance education is one that many other dance institutions do not offer, so students of IBC will have the rare advantage of participating in a conservatory-like approach to their overall ballet training.
