Silver Stars™ is our Senior Citizen program. This program is broken into categories based on “healthy active” seniors and “assisted” seniors. Our classes consist of Ballet, Tap and Creative Movement. Classes are adjusted to the needs of the students and may be performed standing, standing with assistance and seated. The “assisted” program offers creative movement classes for students in the beginning or early stages of Dementia and Parkinson’s Disease. For more information on program policies, regulations, insurance coverage and off-site classes please contact Mrs. Shurley at info@CMSDance.com.
