When it comes to performance arts organization in Bellevue, Washington, no other performance arts organization has survived longer then International Ballet Theatre. Who, without sponsorship from east side corporations -- which was never the plan, and created challenges early on. With cuts to federal grants and east side business who want their brand tied to Seattle, east side performance arts organizations like International Ballet Theatre have been left to their own creative resources. IBT is grateful to have built a loyal and ever-growing audience and we hope, that after 20 years of performing in Bellevue, that IBT has earned its place in Bellevue as a true asset to the community.
