Silver Swans Summer Course 2022 (London)

We’re delighted to be back with our specially designed Silver Swans Summer Course, after the wonderful learning experience and camaraderie of the first year!

  • This year we’ve extended the ballet and repertoire class time, after the feedback suggested you wanted more time to hone your repertoire performance skills.
  • The ballet classes gradually develop your technique and understanding as the week progresses, featuring live piano accompaniment to add to your enjoyment.
  • Combine with Pilates, or book Pilates as a stand alone class.
  • On Friday, the final day, a filmed performance of the repertoire will take place for you to enjoy.

In all classes you will work with experienced RAD Dance Artists and tutors as they encourage and support you with exercises designed to build that core strength, improve your posture and  flexibility and maintain your overall well-being.
