North Point Announces Dance & Performing Arts Program Collaboration

North Point School For Girls and Counterpoint Dance Academy Marda Loop are pleased to announce that we are launching a unique and uplifting optional Dance & Performing Arts Program at North Point School for Girls.  Students will explore the diverse world of the arts, train in the foundations of dance styles and develop performance skills.  Utilizing the beautiful studios and highly qualified instructors at  Counterpoint Dance Academy Marda Loop, the program is designed for young ladies who are passionate about exploring and training in dance.

In a joint statement issued by North Point Head of School, Brent Devost and  Counterpoint Dance Academy Marda Loop Director, Shannon Hearn, the organizations shared their objective for the program:

“The vision is to have a program that will provide girls with unique and inspiring experiences designed to develop their creativity and build confidence, while developing their artistic skills.” 

North Point was founded in Calgary, AB in 2014 as an accredited, non-profit private boys’ school.  Believing that many aspects of our model will also benefit girls, we are excited to be adding a K-9 girls’ school and a co-ed high school in the fall of 2022.  A key element of our program is the opportunity for our students to participate in our passion-based academies.  We are very excited to provide our girls with the opportunity to join our new Dance Academy.  

For 20 years, Counterpoint Dance Academy Marda Loop has operated in the dynamic community of Marda Loop.  CPML is a diverse, family-oriented dance studio that professionally trains a vibrant array of disciplines designed to develop and challenge every young artist. Counterpoint’s community of professionals build technical skills in a fun, nurturing environment, while growing life skills of discipline, focus, work ethic, compassion and community interest.  At CPML nurturing a love of dance is the foundation of the studio.
