Looking for a great Ballet School??? Then, you must check out AIB's Website, or give them a call, and familiarize yourself with this superb Ballet School which belongs to the great Ballet Company, "International Ballet Classique". Yes, you'll have your dance recital, but also have the opportunity to perform in professional ballet productions, such as "Nutcracker". The Ballet Company and their Ballet School are Delaware Valley's best well-kept secret. Since formed, I've attended 98% of their ballet productions and they are "must see" performances for the following reasons: (1) The IBC Ballet Company was founded by graduates of the Bolshoi Ballet Academy who now teach AIB students. They performed with the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, and with other major ballet companies abroad and in the United States. They are Anasthesia Babayeva and Denis Gronostayskiy, and it's an honor to have them in our Delaware Valley area! Among their full-length ballets performed are: "Nutcracker", "Coppelia", "Walpurgis Night" and "Giselle". It's my opinion that Anastasia was born to play "Giselle", and I've seen that ballet at least 15 times! (2) They are devoted to teaching the highest disciplined "Vagonova" method of ballet to their Ballet School students. This is the very same method taught at the Bolshoi; and, (3) AIB's friendly atmosphere grooms serious students in the Art of Ballet, and gives grace, poise, and focusing abilities to both their serious and not-so-serious students.
