Summer 2017 Programs






Creative Movement Class
Offered for young dancers, ages 2.5-4 years old, this class stimulates the brain through movement and music. Teachers use props such as rhythm sticks, scarves, egg shakers and much, much, more! This class is much less structured and allows children to participate as much or as little as they desire.

Dance N' Gym
Offered for ages 3-5 years. This new class combines many styles of dance together. This class uses center work and progressions to build balance and dance movement. The fun continues into the gym, where skills are built to help develop our dancers cognitive and gymnastics skills.

Preschool Combination Classes
Offered for ages 3-5 years. These classes vary in dance disciplines to offer your child their favorite combination. Whether it is ballet/tap or hip hop tumble, we are focused on teaching a strong foundation of dance, engaging their attention and encouraging their imagination.

Ballet
Offered in Preschool Combo and Levels I thru III, ages 3 and up. We at Sterling Academy of Dance believe in dancers having a solid foundation in ballet as it is the core subject in all dance training. Classes focus on barre work, progressions across the floor, center work and correct terminology. Dancers work on improving grace, poise, flexibility and balance. These classes will be sure to help a dancer’s inner ballerina blossom!

Tap
Offered for Preschool Combo and Levels I thru III, ages 4 and up. Many styles of rhythm and technique are explored in these classes. Tap is among dancers favorite disciplines. It offers a perfect balance of sound and fun!

Jazz
Offered Level II and III, ages 6 and up. Jazz dance uses contemporary music and movement in center warm up, progressions, turns and choreography combinations. Dancer’s build skills to improve sharp movement and timing and learn to pick up choreography quickly.

Hip Hop and Hip Hop Aerials
Offered for ages 3 and up. Hip Hop dance is heavily influenced by current music and trends. It is ever changing and evolving. We focus our dancers on learning not just the newest trends but also a history of hip hop movement. This helps our hip hop dancers become well rounded. Hip Hop Aerials class goes into the gym for half of their class to focus on tumbling that can also be used in hip hop movement.

Contemporary/Lyrical
Offered for ages 9 and up. Contemporary/Lyrical class blends ballet and modern dance together. These dancers are taught about improvisational movement as well as partnering and creating movement. This is a great class for a dancer that has existing dance training.

* Please be advised that each dance discipline has a specified dress code.
