Named Building Opportunity

The long term success of IBI requires facilities that would allow the caliber and amount of training necessary to fully develop our students and our vision.  Several studios with sprung floors, cross training equipment and academic classrooms are just a few of the provisions required of a space for a full day’s training and study to go on with multiple levels working simultaneously.  

From the depth of our gratitude, we would offer, as a symbol, to name the building in honor of the donor, thus attaching their name to our school and all that we represent.



  Scholarship Fund - It is central to our mission to continuously increase this figure to ensure that all talented students have access to quality ballet training.

 Boys Scholarships - Providing scholarships for talented boys to increase the number of quality American male ballet artists.

 Minority Scholarships - Providing financial aid to talented dancers of color.

 Pointe Shoe Fund - Subsidizing the exorbitant cost of pointe shoes for female students. At approximately $80-$100 a pair, shoes alone can cost a dancer upwards of $1,500 a year.

 Community Auditions - Recruiting talented beginning students from under-served New York City neighborhoods every spring.



 Join us for a behind the scenes look at what it takes to turn talented youth into world-class ballet dancers.

By becoming a member of International Ballet Institute, your support will help sustain IBI's core programs, ensuring that talented ballet students have access to the highest level of training, state-of-the-art facilities, and many student services beyond the studio.
