Silverswans Ballet are ballet classes exclusively designed for the over 55s. Elite Academy of Dance in Greenock was the first Royal Academy of Dance School to offer these classes in Scotland. This followed on from a pilot programme run by Scottish Ballet in 2013. The classes are totally ballet based. They are formulated and cater especially for those in their 50's. The Silver swan classes will help improve posture, mobility, co-ordination, musicality and help boost energy levels. Studies have also shown that classes also improve lifestyle through the social interaction that these classes bring. Silverswan ballet classes have now been running at Elite Academy of Dance for over 10 years. Ballet classes take place on a Tuesday and Thursday morning at our private studio in Greenock. Classes are open to all abilities. Whether you are a complete novice or have danced before, you will be made most welcome. In 2022 a small group of our Silverswans took to the stage at the Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock to perform in The Elite Academy Summer Show. All classes are taught by industry professionals who are fully qualified and trained in Classical Ballet by the Royal Academy of Dance.
