Silver Swans ballet classes for over 55s launch in Redditch

***UPDATE: We are now also offering Silver Swans classes in Alcester and Henley-in-Arden***

Redditch residents will have the chance to try ballet with our new Silver Swans classes starting in August.

Silver Swans classes have been specifically designed for the over-55s, but whatever your age, if you are looking for a new way to keep fit and active these ballet classes will put a spring in your step.

Classes are open to beginners and more experienced dancers – so whether you’ve never danced before or want to get back into the swing of it, Silver Swans classes have something for everyone.

Dancing can help improve mobility, posture, co-ordination and energy levels. Most importantly, these classes are an opportunity to have fun and enjoy the sense of wellbeing that dance brings

Our Silver Swans classes will start on Thursday 6th August and will be held every Thursday from 11am-12pm at Studio One within the Kingfisher Shopping Centre, Redditch.

Classes are taught by Helena, who is a Royal Academy of Dance Registered Teacher and Silver Swans licensee.

You can try your first Silver Swans class for free. Pre-booking is essential. Contact Helena on 07572 042164 or email

About Silver Swans

The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) developed Silver Swans in response to a growing demand for ballet classes for older learners. Sessions are based upon research into dance practice for older participants from the RAD’s Dance for Lifelong Wellbeing project. This project identified psychological benefits of dance, such as perceived improvements in quality of life, as well as physiological advantages, such as improved balance.

Silver Swans classes are delivered exclusively by Silver Swans Licensees who have trained to safely adapt ballet techniques for older adults.
