Class Description

Silver Swans Ballet 55+ is a specialized programme developed by the Royal Academy of Dance to promote the accessibility and enjoyment of ballet for older learners. Classes are specially adapted and suitable for all dancers whether at beginner or advanced levels; although some knowledge of ballet is desirable, this class is not suitable for complete beginners.

Classes are designed to impart the ethos of classical ballet focussing on the musicality, posture and alignment of the ballet technique as well as building strength, flexibility, co-ordination and balance.

A typical class can include barre, centre practice and travelling sequences with a focus on gaining a strong foundation technique, developing artistry and performance quality.

Silver Swans classes are adaptable and inclusive, perfect if you are looking for a class to rehab injury or working through mobility issues; just let us know in advance so we can accomodate your needs.
