Academical Co-op 


An education accompanying dance.  

The IBA is proud to offer the very first Academic Co-Operative for our Pre-Professional (Pre-PD) and Professional Division (PD) students in grades 8th – 12th grades for the
2016 – 2017 academic year. This opportunity will allow our dancers to receive an academic high-school education while they pursue their development and training in dance. Using the Washington Home Based Instruction Law as the foundation, IBA’s Academic Co-op will provide a dancer and his or her family with support in order to create and complete their own high school plan, while allowing their dance activities to be used as high school credit. Please review the following documents for more details.
