IBC student, Elise Shea Siggul/VAM Productions 2012
Since opening in 2010, the world-class faculty, consisting of Alyona Yakovleva, Tatiana Pali, Sergey Sergiev and Hailey Agran, has garnered both international attention and hometown support. Each year the number of students has consistently increased. Over the summer semester, IBC tripled the enrollment of its student body.
Students were invited April 25 to participate in the Youth America Grand Prix International NYC Finals, the largest international student ballet scholarship competition in the world. With more than 115 ensembles from America, Brazil, Mexico, Italy, Korea, South Africa, Spain and Switzerland, IBC placed in the top 12 with an ensemble piece created by faculty member, Sergey Sergiev, and danced by senior-level students Sterling Manka, Mark Pecar, and Alex Ray.
The general public is welcome to attend an informal End-of-Summer Gala Friday, July 27, 7 pm at the new studios. There is no admission fee, but donations are encouraged.
