My daughter is a student at Ballet North, and I want to highly recommend this studio to you! Ms. Fehr has a college degree in dance education from Brown University and toured internationally as a professional ballerina. Alainna Brown, one of her students, was accepted to the Boston Conservatory and the American Ballet's New York Summer Intensive. Christen Edwards, another student, was invited to audition for the European Ballet in London. Kara Methven, another student and also a teacher at Ballet North, auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance and her flips were seen in the opening of the show. This is not a recreational studio, but it is a lot of fun! Ms. Fehr focuses on learning superior ballet technique, and her studio focuses on beautiful, classical ballet! Other types of dance are also offered. Don't waste your time anywhere else!
