IBI Summer dance program is a professional ballet intensive held on the historic Brenau University campus with international guest artists. IBI provides the highest quality of professional training and an opportunity to train one on one with world-class teachers in an intimate setting. Students will be completely immersed in dance and will obtain invaluable training that will enrich and complement their dance education.

What makes International Ballet Intensive unique?

Strict limits on class size ensure that our teachers are able to give each dancer personal attention.  Every student is provided resources, customized to their individual needs, for technical, artistic, and personal growth. Each dancer will receive a private coaching session. Curriculum includes partnering and classical variations. In addition to the classical ballet curriculum, dancers are exposed to other forms of dance such as, modern and jazz. The program culminates with a public performance.

What can students expect?

Students are immersed in classes from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. six days a week.  In addition, there are rehearsals building toward the final performances for the four-week participants.  Social events and other recreational activities build camaraderie and nourish personal relationships. All students can expect to leave the program stronger technically and better prepared for careers in dance.
