About The Artisan’s Courtyard

The Artisan’s Courtyard now houses the excited and proud new owners of the building; the North Star Ballet. The North Star Ballet is the major educational program of the North Star Dance Foundation, a non-profit, educational organization established in 1980 to promote the art of dance in the Interior Alaska.

The Artisan’s Courtyard began as a dream of Fairbanks community member, Sherrie Martin. The Artisan’s Courtyard has grown into a bustling gathering place that a few dozen thriving businesses call home, providing Fairbanks with new women owned and operated business. Many community and private events find a welcoming venue at the Courtyard. In addition to the North Star Ballet’s ballet, contemporary, and Pilates programs, a wide variety of weekly movement classes fill the studios.  The Courtyard is home to businesses in massage therapy, physical therapy, photography, wax salon, clothing boutique, and a cafe with gluten-free baked goods.

Come visit us and see for yourself all of the wonderful things the Artisan’s Courtyard has to offer. Located at 1755 Westwood Way on College Road, we look forward to meeting you!
