Silver Swans

Silver Swans® is a ballet class designed by The Royal Academy of Dance in London, specifically for the over 55’s. Open and accessible, classes will help improve mobility, posture, coordination and energy level. Suitable for both complete beginners and those with previous dance experience, a Silver Swans class develops ballet technique in a fun and supportive environment. Beautiful classical music and inspiring dance sequences will ensure everyone floats out of the studio with a smile. 

The heath benefits of dance are well documented. Scientific research shows that 75% of the factors affecting quality of life and longevity are related to lifestyle, while on 25% are hereditary. This means there’s no excuse for not keeping active whatever your age, and dance in particular can play a vital role in ensuring a longer and better quality of life. 

Whether you've never danced before or want to get back into the swing of it, are our classes have something for everyone. 

Set too beautiful classical music, we will look at the fundamentals of classical technique in an inclusive manner, develop sequences and steps and learn classical ballet repertoire.
