What you'll need to do

 

Access to Online Classes is via Zoom app.

 

Zoom is a leading software that will allow us to demonstrate to you online via your mobile phones, laptops or tablets.

 

You will need to download the Zoom app if you have not already got this. From experience, I would advise downloading the app a couple of days before the class, so you have it ready to go. You can download the app from the link below.

SILVER SWANS BALLET 55+ ONLINE

Absolute Beginners/Beginners

In these somewhat challenging times, it is more important than ever to keep yourself physically fit, and mentally active. The release of endorphins is just one reason that medical professionals recommend exercise as a way to improve lifestyle while increasing overall fitness. The comradery from an online class is a lovely way to feel a form of social connection, with a common goal. If you don't want to join us alone, why not join with a friend - and unlike physical classes, you don't need to live in the same place to have a shared experience. 

​About our classes

  • Silver Swans™ classes are designed to help the older learner enjoy movement and dance for lifelong wellbeing

  • They are inclusive and are tailored to meet the level of mobility for all individuals.
