Ballet

Level One - Beginners

These classes are open to all adults, of all shapes and sizes, who would like to "have a go" at ballet but have never had the opportunity before, or novice dancers who have not danced for many years. We cover ballet basics - proper posture, correct placement, musicality, flexibility and grace of movement - at a gentle pace. Ballet steps are introduced slowly so that confidence and ballet technique develop side by side. Ballet is fantastic exercise, mentally challenging and great fun! The aim of this class is to give a taste of "the real thing!" - beautiful movement to beautiful music, in a safe and encouraging environment.

Level Two - Refresher

This course is open to all adults who have some previous ballet training either at Bailey-Cox or else where. You need to have a basic knowledge of good posture, arm and foot positions, barre work and steps in order to join this class. We hope to help revive a passion for ballet while progressing at a comfortable pace, increasing strength, flexibility and confidence.

Royal Academy Silver Swans

Silver Swans

Specially designed for older learners, these classes will help  improve your mobility, posture, coordination and energy levels. Most  importantly, you'll have fun and enjoy the sense of wellbeing that dance  brings!  

See the introductory videos at the bottom of this page featuring Angela Rippon the Silver Swans Ambassador.

IMPROVE YOUR DANCE-LIFE BALANCE!

The  health benefits of dance are well documented. Research shows that 75%  of the factors affecting quality of life and longevity are related to  lifestyle, while only 25% are hereditary. This means that there‚Äôs no  excuse for not getting more active  whatever your age, and dance, in particular, can play a vital  role in ensuring a longer and better quality of life.

Research  also often puts dance ahead of other physical activities in the variety  of health benefits that it brings. Ballet and dance are also very  social activities and Silver Swans classes can be great places to meet  new people with a passion and joy for life.

RELEASE YOUR INNER SWAN

 Silver  Swans Licensed Teachers are trained  specifically to teach ballet to adults over 55 with a range of abilities but all  ages are welcome.  Open, fun and accessible, these classes will help  improve your mobility, posture, coordination, and energy levels, no  matter how old you are.
