Silverton Ballet Work Study Program

Silverton Ballet and Performing Arts Company work study program is designed to provide students at the intermediate level and higher with an alternate method of tuition payment.

The ability to improve a dancer's technique is directly related to the number of hours of study per week. An increase in classes means an increase in time commitment for both the parent and the student, as well as an increase in cost.

Our work study program enables students to offset at least a portion of their tuition by assisting at the studio during the year.

The added benefits are many. By working with a lower level, the dancer improves the basic level of his/her own technique. And for the younger dancer who has an interest in becoming a teacher, the experience of working with children under the tutelage of an experienced professional is invaluable.
