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.

and movement in center warm up, progressions, turns, and choreography combinations.
Dancers build skills to improve sharp movement and timing and learn to pick up
Offered for Preschool Combo and Levels I through III, ages 4 & 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!
Preschool Combo and Levels I
through III, ages 3 & up. We, at Sterling
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! (Pointe class is also available to more advanced
dancers who enroll in multiple ballet classes per week.)
This class trains our dancers in various acrobatic movements. This class is
also designed to develop strength and flexibility in our dancers. The combination adds so
much to a dancer’s abilities.
Hip Hop and Hip Hop Aerials
Offered for ages 3 & up. Hip Hop dance is heavily
influenced by current music and trends. It is ever changing and evolving. We focus our
dancers’ learning on both the newest trends and the history of hip hop movement.
This helps our hip hop dancers become well rounded. Hip Hop Aerials classes include time
in the gym to focus on tumbling that can also be used in hip hop movement.
Offered for ages 9 & up. Contemporary / Lyrical classes
blend ballet and modern dance together. These dancers are taught improvisational
movement as well as partnering and creative movement. This is a great class for a student
who has previous dance training.
* Please be advised that each dance discipline has a specified dress code.
