Are you looking for a new way to keep fit and active? Have you always wanted to learn ballet but never got to do it when you were younger? Do you want a fun class that is specifically designed for the over-55's?


Silver Swans™ Hinckley is developed by the Royal Academy of Dance. This ballet program is based on research into dance practice for older learners and classes can only be taught by Silver Swans™ Licensees. Silver Swans™ teachers are trained specifically to teach a range of abilities (seated or standing) and ages over-55, but you're free to join us whatever your age!

These open, accessible and low-impact classes are set to beautiful classical music. Classes are for both complete beginners and experienced dancers. These fun, educational classes will help improve your mobility, posture, co-ordination, cognitive ability and energy levels.

Most importantly, these classes are an opportunity to have fun, expand your social circle and enjoy the sense of well-being that dance brings.
If you are looking for a new way to keep fit and active these ballet classes will put a spring in your step!

The health benefits of dance are well documented. Scientific research shows that 75% of the factors affecting the quality of life and longevity are related to lifestyle while only 25% are hereditary. Research often puts dance ahead of other physical activities in the variety of health benefits that it brings. There’s no excuse for not being more active, whatever your age, and dance can play a vital role in ensuring a longer and higher quality of life.

I would highly recommend Silver Swans Hinckley.

Hinckley is very lucky that Kim Bamford has started this up as it's not available in every county in the UK.

Kim is a great teacher and the ambience is great.

Will look forward to future sessions.

from a very Happy Hinckley Silver Swan
