Selective, audition-based pre-professional program for the serious advanced dancer to harness passion and energy in delivering powerful and memorable performances.
“My greatest inspiration comes from my students – each one is unique, and teaching them is like discovering the right “key” for each individual to reach their own potential. It’s a challenging, yet truly rewarding process, and my hope is that they will carry this love of art throughout their lives. Though not all students will aspire to have careers as dancers, I know that the lessons learned in the studio and on the stage will have a deep and useful impact in their future endeavors.”
– Vlada Kysselova, Artistic Director
“As the Music Director and Conductor of The Greenville Symphony Orchestra, I have, for many years, enjoyed the very successful and inspiring collaboration between IB and the GSO.

– Edvard Tchivzhel, Music Director and Conductor of The GSO
“We are regularly amazed at the degree of professionalism that International Ballet exhibits performance after performance. Having moved from a city with a professional ballet company, we were so pleased to be able to continue our love of the art form with this beautifully trained group of devoted young dancers. We are also thrilled that young people are able to have IB in their lives to nurture their love of dance while building a solid artistic background.”
– Sandy & Jack Halsey, IB Patrons
