Sterling Silver Studio offers students appropriate technique, history and terminology in ballet classes. Students will be guided through classes that stress proper alignment to prevent injury. Our ballet program offers students the chance to develop their poise, strength, flexibility, and grace through progressive lessons. Readiness to dance on pointe is determined by the student’s strength and physical development. Your instructor will advise parents when a ballet student has reached the maturity level to go on pointe.
Contemporary dance is not a specific dance technique, but a collection of methods developed from modern and post modern dance. Technique from all styles of dance including Jazz, Ballet, Modern and more can be combined to perform a Contemporary dance piece.

These classes are highly recommended for students who strive to progress in dance and/or twirling.
