it’s never too late to shine

Silver Swans

Silver Swans classes have been specifically designed for the over-55s, but whatever your age, if you are looking for a new way to keep fit and active our ballet classes will put a spring in your step. Whether you’ve never danced before or want to get back into the swing of it, our classes have something for everyone.

The RAD developed this programme based on research into dance practice for older learners – classes are only taught by Silver Swan Licensees.

Silver Swan Facts

The health benefits are well documented. Scientific research shows that 75% of the factors affecting quality of life and longevity are related to lifestyle, while only 25% are hereditary. This means that there’s no excuse for not getting more active whatever your age, and dance in particular can play a vital role in ensuring a longer and better quality of life. Research also often puts dance ahead of other physical activities in the variety of health benefits that it brings.

9 ways in which dance can improve your life:

  1. Dance increases your energy.
  2. Dance can help reduce stress and support weight loss.
