Star Island Information

Our dance weekend on Star Island  is special largely because of the setting:  a tiny, remote, stunningly gorgeous island in the Gulf of Maine.  Sharing this unique place with fellow conferees is a singular pleasure, and the Star Island Corporation (SIC) hosts hundreds of visitors from June through September.

The SIC website has nearly everything you need to know about being on Star.  Let the registrar know if there's something you can't find after you browse these pages.
