Silver Swans Ballet

Silver Swans is the result of a research project conducted by the Royal Academy of Dance into dance for lifelong wellbeing. This is a gentle ballet class to improve balance, posture, coordination, agility and spatial awareness.

After a loosening, general warm-up, exercises are undertaken at the barre and then in the centre, including some light jumps. Most of the work however does not involve jumping. We use recorded classical piano music and aim to create a sociable atmosphere where everyone feels at home. 

Teachers have to be licensed by the RAD to deliver the programme.
