Silver Swans is a ballet class specifically designed for over 55s. These classes will help improve mobility, posture, co-ordination and energy levels. Most importantly, they are fun, enjoyable, and bring about a sense of wellbeing.

Silver Swans was designed by the Royal Academy of Dance and is suitable for both beginners and experienced dancers. There are no age or physical restrictions to join a Silver Swans ballet class. It is a safe learning environment where all abilities and people are welcome. It is never too late to become a ballerina!
