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, once at a membership event and once at a fundraising event. As part of the International Ballet Association, Friends enjoy benefits that include the early purchase of ticket packages for each competition and the Reunion Gala. Friends membership is included in the Applause, Bravo, Encore Club, and Circle levels of IBA.
