Golden Swans is a brand new program geared towards senior citizens who are either beginners or have had some past experience with ballet. The goal of the program is to keep the students moving and agile while exploring ballet movements. Classes are currently held at The Fountains at Canterbury with different sessions scheduled to occur throughout the season. Laura Ward is the Golden Swans Teacher.
Ballet classes for seniors have been shown to increase quality of life in multiple ways. Participation in ballet class keeps the body nimble and improves overall mobility. Ballet is a great way to stay physically active at an age! The structure of a ballet class with movements being performed to music helps to increase mental stimulation as well.
