About Us

 

Mission Statement: 

To promote, teach and enhance Italian culture through music and dance.

Le Stelle Alpine Italian Performing Arts Association was first established in 1982 by founder Laura Pascolo McRury to represent and share Italian culture within the community of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Now celebrating its 36th year, Le Stelle Alpine Italian Dancers continue with the same mission: “To promote, teach and enhance Italian culture through music and dance.”

Le Stelle Alpine Italian Dancers is an Italian folk dance group dedicated to promoting and preserving Italian culture in North America. Named after the star shaped flower that can be found throughout Italy’s countryside, our artistic directors and dancers strive to represent all regions of Italy by creating and performing a variety of Italian folk dances for audiences all over the world. By promoting, teaching, and enhancing Italian culture through music and dance, Le Stelle Alpine Italian Dancers are proud to celebrate and share Italian culture.

Le Stelle Alpine Italian Dancers welcomes youth of any race, culture, or creed. Registration for dance classes is always welcome and open to all abilities and nationalities.

Join us in celebrating and sharing Italian culture.
