Indiana Ballet Theatre, known as IBT, is a 501c3 non-for-profit organization. IBT has remained intently focused on a very simple mission for the past 34 years. We are dedicated to give the community exposure to the world of dance through performance, outreach and the finest education. We accomplish our goals through multi-faceted programs with our many community partners such as the Girl Scouts, Boys and Girls Clubs, etc. IBT continues to utilize valuable resources of the region by performing full-length traditional ballets and original dance productions using local talent. Our goal is to keep the art of quality dance by preserving historical ballet stories while offering and entertaining, educational and affordable experience for area residents. We strongly believe that the arts are essential to a healthy society.
The Founder and CEO of Indiana Ballet Theatre and its board of directors are committed to the renovation of the existing Nurses Building, to preserve the history of this last remaining home of its kind in America that is not renovated, and create a one of a kind family, arts, educational facility with a touch of England in the U.S. We are looking to past, present and future IBT contributors and members to help make this a reality by 2016. From donor plaques prominently placed in the reception area, to a dedication to the Black Box Theatre, there exist many opportunities to join us in this venture. By contributing to our efforts, you will help IBT continue to educate and influence arts, culture and quality of life in Northwest Indiana and the Chicagoland area. Visitors will come from miles, creating revenue for the area businesses and shops, while creating jobs and enhance the areas tourism. Please donate to this wonderful project.
