If there's one thing I love about this place it's how dedicated the teachers are. Mr. Alexei and Ms. Ronna have such a true passion for ballet and teaching. My daughter had no prior dancing experience and has only been in their class for about 10 months and in such a short time, she's learned so much. The classes are small so the teachers can focus on ALL their students and provide quality instruction. The teachers genuinely care about their students and their passion for the performing arts is inspiring. There are dance studios all over town but we choose to drive 21 miles farther because IBTI is the best! Having a great tasting room just below the studio is just icing on the cake. Michelle

Mr. Badrak is a ballet master, artistic director and chorographer employing the world-renown Vaganova Methodology. This method of training is used in Russia and is well known as one of the greatest methods to renowned dancers. In order to learn the method, the greatest teachers study at either the Lunacharsky State Institute of Theatrical Arts in Moscow, or at the Choreographic Department of the Conservatory in St. Petersburg (formerly Leningrad). Mr. Badrak studied at both institutes and obtained from St. Petersburg Conservatory an M.A. in Choreography with a specialty in Artistic Direction (Theater Management).
Alexei Badrak completed course work for his Ph.D., 5 years, (Soviet) at the State Academic Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, specializing in Choreography with Yuri N. Grigorovich, the director of training and is a PhD. Candidate in art History at the Saratov State conservatory, Russia.
Mr. Badrak is an author and lecturer as well. There are very few individuals as well qualified in the world as Mr. Badrak, now working in the United States, who have completed that level of intensive curriculum training with the vast experience and award accolades that Mr. Badrak possesses.

He is an all Soviet honored and awarded choreographer and director with many classical, contemporary and original choreographic works for stage, television and film. Mr. Badrak has developed his own unique training curriculum in Character and Classical Ballet based upon the Russian methodology, ethnology and technological innovation.
It's my opinion that Mr. Badrak is an Artist of the highest creative magnitude, an innovative and prolific Choreographer and Director who extracts and captures the true essence of the individual artist. Mr. Badraks choreography represents the highest level of aesthetics and incorporates the purest, most expressive means to produce exquisite choreography that speaks to the very core of the Human soul.
