Fun and fitness with free online dance classes

In a bid to beat the lockdown blues, the RAD has  launched ‘Step it Up’, based on classes offered as part of the Step into Dance programme, as well as new online Silver Swans tutorials.

Step it up

Launching Tuesday 26 January at 12.30pm, the RAD and Step into Dance will release a free online class every Tuesday and Thursday for four weeks aimed at secondary school students. These will bring a range of dance styles direct to your home, delivered by expert practitioners. Each class is 30 minutes in length, offering the perfect opportunity to inject some fun into your daily routine, as well as stay active indoors.

Whether you’re dynamite on the dance floor or you’ve never set foot in a dance studio before, these classes are the perfect break from your desk, or a great addition to the home schooling schedule.

Visit our Step it Up page to find out more.

Silver Swans tutorials

For older learners, ‘Silver Swans’ tutorials will help improve mobility, posture, co-ordination and boost energy levels, online every Wednesday at 1pm, starting 27 January.

We’ll be showcasing classes from around the UK and beyond through manageable bitesize videos, delivered by a different Silver Swans Licensee each week, each with their own take on ballet exercises adapted for older learners.

Viewers can also revisit the Silver Swans taster classes taught by RAD Teacher and Silver Swans expert Sarah Platt in the first national lockdown, which are still available online.
