About Silver Swans

Silver Swans is a ballet program designed to bring the beauty and artistry of dance to adults of all ages and abilities. Developed by the prestigious Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), this program was created to offer an inclusive and empowering approach to ballet. Silver Swans welcomes those who are new to dance, those returning to it after a break, and even experienced dancers looking to embrace the grace of ballet in a more relaxed and age-appropriate setting.

A Brief History of Silver Swans

The Silver Swans program was introduced by the RAD in response to the growing interest in ballet among adults, particularly in the 55+ age group. The program aimed to create a structured yet enjoyable way for older learners to experience the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of ballet. Launched in 2017, Silver Swans rapidly gained popularity, becoming a symbol of artistic expression and wellness in the adult dance world.

Key Figures Involved

The heart of the Silver Swans program lies in the talented and dedicated instructors who bring the world of ballet to adult learners. These instructors, often certified by the RAD, guide participants through the enchanting journey of Silver Swans. They tailor lessons to the individual needs and aspirations of each dancer, ensuring a nurturing and supportive learning environment.

Silver Swans participants are equally essential to the program’s success. They come from diverse backgrounds and experiences, yet all share a common passion for dance. This diversity creates a vibrant and inclusive community where individuals can learn from one another and celebrate their unique journeys in dance.
