Auction items are seen by hundreds of IBC participants, patrons and esteemed guests as well as online visitors across the ballet world. This is a great opportunity to increase exposure for your product or service! 

The Scholarship Fund is administered by the USA-IBC and proceeds are presented to one of the ballet competitors on-stage during the awards ceremony. USA-IBC competitors can apply for the scholarship by writing a one to two page essay about what ballet means to them and how the scholarship would change/improve their artistic journey. Auction items will be on display in the Thalia Mara Theatre Lobby, and/or the Westin Hotel Atrium.

A note from Alexa regarding what the scholarship meant to her...


The first word that comes to mind when I think about the moment I received the scholarship is “gratitude”. It is truly a blessing to be a Dominican ballet dancer, but it is definitely not a “one man job”.


There are moments in life that remind us of why we go through difficult times, why we sacrifice so much; and this was one of them. I knew the moment I heard my name called, that I could keep going. I had to keep going.Receiving this award was the beginning of a career I would have only dreamed of having…

I will always be grateful for the Scholarship made possible by & USA IBC. Their support showed me that hard work and a humble heart are enough. I am so excited to see the future recipients of this beautiful award!

Our 2018 Silent Auction raised over $5,000. Let's beat it! |
