The North Star Ballet School is an educational institution dedicated to providing quality ballet training for the Interior of Alaska. The School offers an eight year graded syllabus in classical ballet and a Creative Movement Program for children ages 4-7. The School is an excellent environment for both the student with career aspirations and the student who seeks personal enrichment through dance. Classes are small with emphasis on individual growth in a supportive atmosphere. The School incorporates a kinesthetic approach to movement and dance training through the understanding of anatomical principals and the dynamics of movement. The faculty, under the direction of Norman Shelburne, is professional and highly skilled. The North Star Ballet School has been serving the Interior for 30 years.
