Simply put....The foundation for all dance. All classes include barre, center and across the floor work encompassing various levels of adagio, port de bras, petit and grand allegro. Students will learn proper terminology associated with all movement and steps as well as developing a strong center, body placement, balance, gracefulness and precise technique.
Jazz and Lyrical
Focusing on technique in warm ups, progressions and center combinations developing control and flexibility through the use of isolations, turns and jumps. Lyrical will utilize the above but add in more expression of the music.
An energetic street style taught to age appropriate popular music. Students will learn musicality and how to rhythmically interpret the music during center, across the floor and freestyle combinations.
Dancers will experience technique that explores resisting and yielding to gravity, contraction and release as well as fall and recovery, through leverage, balance, movement dynamics and breath.
Students will develop rhythm, coordination and clarity of sounds, while learning tap's founding skills and some of today's newest steps.

Silverton Ballet and Performing Arts Company mentorship program is designed to provide students at the intermediate level and higher with an opportunity to assist in younger classes as well as an alternate method of tuition payment.
Applicants are chosen based on their work ethic, character and committment consistently demonstrated in class.
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. We are proud to be helping build strong, confident, well trained future dance educators!
