North Pointe Ballet was founded by director Janet Strukely-Dziak in 2016.

NPB’s mission is to make classical ballet accessible to the community it serves. It offers family-friendly, easy-to-understand, professional ballet productions in the western suburbs of Cleveland. The performances feature classically-trained professional dancers who provide the foundation of the cast.

In fulfilling the mission to make classical ballet accessible, North Pointe Ballet is committed to offering opportunities for all levels of students to perform alongside the professionals. NPB believes that in order to cultivate the next generation of arts supporters, it must expose children to the culture of classical ballet from the perspective of both an audience member and as a performer.
