In 2015* the Sterling Ballet Company has established a pre-professional dance Company comprised of dynamic current students. The Advanced III Level (Pre-Professional Level) and Intensive Level Students at the Sterling Ballet Academy is designed to meet the highest artistic standards. The artistic staff trains dancers to develop a strong foundation in classical ballet. With the discipline and confidence cultivated at the Academy, students can pursue careers as professional dancers, or find success in other fields. As part of the Pre-Professional Level students participate in a full schedule of evening dance classes, and perform in the Company annual Winter and Spring productions. Productions have included The Jewel Heart, Nutcracker, and Wolves.
