How to age well

The RAD’s Silver Swans were featured on ITV’s Tonight programme last night in a segment on the efficacy of dance to improve fitness and wellbeing.

Silver Swans Licensee, Johanna Hadley was shown delivering an online class while pointing out the huge benefits of dance for older people: “It’s a great form of exercise for men and for women. It’s a whole body workout – you’re using all your coordination and it’s a workout for the mind. When you’re thinking about which way your arms and your legs are going, it’s like exercising without realising you’re exercising.”

One Silver Swan commented “It’s just made me feel so much happier in myself; I wouldn’t give it up for the world. We always leave the class with a spring in our step for the rest of the week.”

You can watch the programme on the ITV website.
