Internet Ballet Database
Internet Ballet Database (IBDB) is the most complete ballet and contemporary dance database ever compiled. The database is continuously expanded and updated by BalletBase community members adding information about themselves and their professional activities that IBDB tracks automatically.
IBDB is a community project and open for new entries from all dance professionals and associates as well as dance enthusiasts and anyone who shares our passion.
To ensure accuracy, some data submitted will be checked by the portal moderator.

BalletBase is the leading international community for dance professionals, associates and dance lovers that serves as a global communications network for real collaboration. It is based on invitation-only membership, which makes the social network unique and the connections authentic.
There are five simple points of the community:
- The community belongs to its members.
- On joining, a new member is automatically introduced to all the others and is free to connect with any member. However, we request that members respect each other’s privacy.
- We have formed BalletBase to clearly separate dance professionals from non-professionals in the belief that this is in the best interests of ballet and contemporary dance.
- Members will have the opportunity to vote for who and what is best in ballet and contemporary dance.
- As a united community we are able to provide real support for the creative and professional growth of our members.
