Join us for the Friends of the USA IBC  Annual Membership Party Thursday, Nov. 15, at the home of Phoebe and Rob Pearigen, 1543 North State Street, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The cost to attend is the amount of your dues (junior, individual or couple), payable at the door or online. Current members may attend at no charge.

Friends of the USA IBC is an active membership group within the International Ballet Association. As volunteers, Friends support the USA IBC’s everyday needs and special projects. They plan fundraising and Friends’ membership events, serve on competition work committees, assist with the public school CityDance program (helping with auditions, dancewear purchases, and recitals) and are local and national advocates for the USA IBC.  Members (and future members) gather at least twice a year and are involved in outreach initiatives such as BalletBackstory and receptions outside of Jackson.

As part of the International Ballet Association, Friends enjoy benefits that include the early purchase of ticket packages for each competition and Reunion Gala. (Friends membership is included in the Donor, Bravo, Encore Club and Circle levels of IBA.)

Annual Friends’ membership dues are:

  • $30.00 annual Junior Patron membership – Ages of 21-30
    ($120 – 4 yr membership)
  • $50.00 Individual membership – Individuals over 30
    ($200 – 4 yr membership)
