SILVER SWANS   SILVER TAP   SILVER CYGNETS   ADULT TAP

 

SILVER SWANS

The Royal Academy of Dance have developed the SILVER SWANS programme based on research into dance for older learners - they are only taught by LICENSED TEACHERS - of which there are two at our school!

Angela Rippon CBE has also endorsed this wonderful work by becoming our Ambassador!

Our classes have been a tremendous success! Not only are you able to learn the basics of:

  • ballet
  • repertoire
  • choreography
  • musicality

but we offer teas and coffees in our tea room; visits to The Royal Opera House to see well known ballets such as 'The Nutcracker' and 'Swan Lake'; social events and lots and lots of friendship and pure enjoyment!

All of our 'Silver' classes take place during the day.

There is no need to book - purely turn up and join our wonderful group of 'mature dancers'!

Silver classes have grown and grown and our members often remark that they have seen remarkable changes in posture, balance, and fitness, but more importantly have gained confidence, a feeling of well-being and have gained a whole new social life! 

We are very inclusive! Everybody is welcome regardless of whether you are a retired 'Darcy Bussell' or a complete beginner!

SILVER TAP

Fancy learning to Tap dance?

We offer a beginner's Silver Tap class straight after Silver Swans for all those who would love to learn how to Shuffle off to Buffalo and Timestep - whether for the first time, or to renew an old skill!!

Our Silver Classes are so popular that we are opening additional new classes as from September 2018!

Look out for details!

SILVER CYGNETS

Alternatively, we offer SILVER CYGNETS for dancers aged 30-55. Once again, a great opportunity to learn the art of ballet for the first time or those returning after having a break - the class suits all abilities.

 

So come along and join us on a Wednesday evening - you never know, you might end up taking one of our famous 'Adult Exams'!

ADULT TAP

Our Adult Tap classes have been very successful since January 2017. The classes are enormous fun and usually culminate in a termly 'exam' or demonstration to family and friends for those who wish to partake!

Dress code for all of our Adult Classes is... 'comfortable'!

You can purchase shoes and other dance related items from our on site, 'Ballet Barre'.

 

 We also have social evenings and an annual trip to the West End - we have all been totally inspired by 'Stepping Out' and '42nd Street'!!

If you are looking for theatre visits; a sense of achievement; want to expand your social life or just for fun - our Adult Classes are for you! Come and join us!! We'd love to see you!!
