Past season's performances of Alice in Wonderland and Wizard of Oz have played to full houses of parents and their kids, giving hundreds of families a chance to attend a live theatre performance together.

About IBT For Children
IBT for Children celebrates the experience of dancing as a dancer with a professional ballet company. The International Ballet Academy encourages our young student dancers to believe in themselves, to set goals and do it with confidence. We know that any dancer who has performed for a live audience knows the excitement and emotional thrill one gets from the experience.IBT for Children’s series of performances has been created to promote dance in our community in two ways. The first is to inspire International Ballet Academy (IBA) students in the studio to bring their dance skills to the stage by producing a live performance in a public theatre with a full production team; marketing, ticket sales, rehearsals, make-up, costuming, lights, sound and an appreciative live audience. We hope our young dancers can inspire the next generation of children to see dance and the performance arts as a creative outlet that provides the opportunity for children to work together and support one another while sharing in the creative process. And second, to continue preserving the art of dance. We want families to be able to witness a professional ballet company and share a casual yet stimulating experience in the magical world of live theatre and dance.
