We are fortunate to have been serving our community since 1991. We have had the pleasure of working with thousands of young people over the years and we have enjoyed watching them grow into successful adults. We are proud to say that we are now serving our second generation of Sterling Silver dancers and twirlers.
At Sterling Silver Studio, we believe in giving all of our students the opportunity to perform. It is our philosophy that giving children the opportunity to perform not only enhances their experience as a performing arts student, but it also plays a key role in developing confidence, self- esteem and respect for their fellow team members. All of our students are welcome to perform at events with us; preschoolers, adult learners, collegiate dancers and twirlers, special needs students, recreational students, performing arts company members… we are all considered equal.
“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.” ~ Barack Obama
Serving others builds character. At Sterling Silver Studio, we believe in teaching our students the importance of giving back to the community. We engage our students in community based activities by providing them with opportunities to perform at charitable fundraising events such as the Lake Superior
Dragon Boat Festival, events that bring the community together such as Parades, Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremonies and Community Winter Fest activities, and outreach programs such as school events and youth activities. We teach our students the importance of service by bringing them to nursing homes to perform for folks that might not otherwise have the opportunity to interact with young people. We use this as a teaching opportunity by explaining to our students that just because some members of our society are in a nursing home does not mean that we can forget them. We recognize the opportunity to turn performances into events to promote positive social change. A few of examples of how we have done this include pulling wagons in parades that we perform in to collect school supplies for local children in need, collecting donations for the food shelf at our performances and creating drives for donations for orphanages at our parades and shows.
We have been blessed with the talent and the opportunity to teach others to love and to excel in performing arts. We have embraced this chance by using our skills and the performance opportunities that are before us to not only build strong dancers, twirlers and artists; but to build positive strong leaders for the next generation with character, compassion and dignity.
