Silver Swans

Silver Swans is an initiative by the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) that allows older learners to discover the joy of movement while building strength, enhancing balance and increasing flexibility.

Whether you’re an experienced dancer, have dabbled briefly, or are a complete novice, Silver Swans welcomes all to participate in ballet classes which are specifically tailored for older learners and focus on the benefits of enhancing mobility, posture, coordination and energy levels.

 With local classes held every Friday morning at the Newman Hall, Henleaze, a friendly bunch of ladies (men welcome too!) work through the class led by experienced teacher Alexandra Sherman. Having trained at the Royal Ballet School and been principal of Bristol Ballet Centre for 24 years, she is passionate about spreading this form of exercise for both the physical and social benefits.

Silver Swans offers a delightful way to stay active (despite any physical/age limitations), connected and uplifted through music and movement. Come along and see for yourself by booking a free trial class.
