Silver Swans

Specially designed for older learners, Silver Swans® ballet classes will help improve your mobility, posture, co-ordination and energy levels. The health benefits of dance are well documented.

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 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. Ballet and dance are also very social activities and Silver Swans classes can be great places to meet new people with a passion and joy for life.

Silver Swans Licensees are trained specifically to teach ballet to adults over 55s with a range of abilities, but all ages are welcome.  Open, fun and accessible, these classes will help improve your mobility, posture, coordination, and energy levels, no matter how old you are.

Silver Swans has been running from September 2017 in the UK, USA and Australia and was launched in New Zealand in 2019!  Use the map on this page to find a Silver Swans teacher in your area.
