Dance, Health & Wellbeing Facts

The health related benefits of dance are well documented. Scientific research has established that 75% of the factors affecting quality of life and longevity are lifestyle related and only 25% are in fact hereditary. So it is clear that dance, along with other physical activities, has a vital role in ensuring a good quality of life for longer, given extended life expectancies.

Research has positioned dance ahead of other physical activity in terms of the extent of its health promoting benefits including:

  • improving balance, minimising falls
  • slowing down ageing (connected to calming the immune system)
  • increasing cognitive ability (by promoting new synapse connection)

Likewise the social benefits of dance amongst this age group have also been well documented.

Silver Swans® classes have been specifically designed for the over-55s, but whatever your age, if you are looking for a new way to keep fit and active our ballet classes will put a spring in your step. Whether you’ve never danced before or want to get back into the swing of it, our classes have something for everyone.

The RAD developed this programme based on research into dance practice for older learners.

Classes are only taught by Silver Swans licensed teachers.
