North Pointe Ballet’s K-5 Assemblies consist of performance excerpts of full-length ballets by fully-costumed professional dancers, as well as movement activities to engage students in active learning led by NPB dancers and directors.
In North Pointe Ballet’s effort to make classical ballet accessible to everyone, NPB’s school assemblies engage students in a theatrical production differently than a traditional theater experience and offer them a chance to experience ballet up-close and learn what it means to be a professional dancer. Past tours have included excerpts from:
The Sleeping Beauty
The Wizard of Oz
Each tour offers a unique focus, including pantomime, storytelling, character development, and healthy lifestyles.
Each program is 45-55 minutes in length and can be customized to accommodate schedule and audience needs. Cost for the program is $500. Discounts available for schools and facilities that qualify.

who attended one of NPB’s matinee field trip performances at the Lorain Palace Theater in the 2022-2023 school year
“You and your dancers were amazing! Our students and staff LOVED the performances! They’re the perfect balance of beautiful artistry and interactive opportunities. Plus, they allow all of our students to experience the ballet in a meaningful and successful way.”
“The performance was wonderful! Our students really enjoyed being involved in the pantomime so they could understand the story better as well as participate during the show!”
“We were so thrilled to have NPB come to our school. We were pleasantly surprised as to how well they did with our very young students. A great mix of performances, interactive moments and age-appropriate information was given.”
“Our principal commented on how engaged students were during the show. They were truly captivated by each moment! Teachers have been sharing how excited students have been in the classroom now when they hear Nutcracker music, see ballet, or a mention of the Nutcracker as the holiday season approaches. Students were even dancing in the halls on their way back to their classrooms. Thank you so much for sharing your gift with us!”
“Having NPB come to our school to work with our children was very beneficial since many of our children do not have transportation. The children and parents were very excited and felt it was an opportunity of a lifetime.”
