IBC: Bringing the Magic of Ballet to Delaware County Since 2003
Dear ballet and art lovers,
International Ballet Classique is pleased to welcome you to our brand new website. Many hours of planning and intense work have allowed us to re-introduce IBC to both new and long-time audience members.
Established in 2003, our production company is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of classical ballet and new and creative ideas in the arts.
To accomplish this mission, International Ballet Classique produces and stages professional level ballet performances, ballet festivals, lecture demonstrations, which all endeavor to make ballet and dance in general available to a wider and even more diverse audience.
In addition to presenting The Nutcracker ballet each year at Neumann’s Fred P. Meagher Theatre, our company produces several other full-length classical ballets: Coppelia, Giselle, Paquita, Peter & the Wolf, Carnival of the Animals, excerpts from Swan Lake, the Sabre Dance from the ballet Gayaneh, Les Apparitions, and children fairy tale ballets, as well as dance festivals, including works by contemporary choreographers and multicultural world dance events.
