ADC|IBC is a non-profit, 501 (c)(3), Youth International Scholarship Ballet Competition for all nationalities, ages 9-21, that was formed in 2005. Over the last decade, the organization has developed into a leader in its field with an ever growing network that helps connect and facilitate the progress of professional training. The event serves as an annual meeting ground for dancers, teachers, directors, choreographers, professionals, dance media, vendors and dance lovers. With more than $250,000 in scholarship funds being awarded each year through the collaborative efforts of our Scholarship Partners, we are able to carry out our NON PROFIT MISSION to place students into professional training programs.
