In 2014 Nicole Lechner, Owner and Creative Director, dared to make her dreams come true by opening her own studio.  Nicole's passion for dance, teaching and mentoring children and young adults has laid the foundation for her successes in the dance industry.

NorthStar had a humble start in Jordan, MN in 2013 working out of a garage just like Amazon and Apple.  In 2014 we are poised to deliver over 30 years combined dance experience into an amazing studio experience for parents and students. 


Our Mission...

NorthStar Dance Company is committed to the art of dance.  Our mission is to instill passion, confidence, self-expression and appreciation for music and dance as well as inspire our dancers to further enhance their knowledge and skills of dance, work diligently and be active in our community.

NorthStar Dance Company is Scott County's newest and most innovative center for dance.  Located in the city of Jordan, the studio is situated perfectly for dancers to come from all over the area and benefit from the "NorthStar Experience". 

Founded and owned by dancer/choreographer Nicole Lechner, NorthStar's philosophy represents a positive and exciting learning environment where dancers can have fun, be creative and experience the incredible art of dance.  NorthStar Dance Company offers high quality training in a nurturing environment to the Scott County area.  We have highly qualified adult teachers, certified by national dance organizations and/or university trained. 

NorthStar Dance Company did wonders for my girls!. After being dancers for 9 years, the growth in their dance ability was exceptional. The teachers are fantastic role models for the students and are consistent, and dedicated to helping them achieve their overall best! My husband and I loved that NSDC is teaching the students about so much more then dance. NSDC taught the students about being part of a team, self discipline, poise, confidence and much more. While at NSDC, they recognize the importance in family so we were able to still do our weekend get-away’s. Most important, the girls had so much fun and can’t wait to start up again. We will miss you over the summer!
