As well as adult ballet classes I run Silver Swans ballet classes designed for people over the age of 55. I was a professional dancer myself and performed around the world with Mathew Bourne’s New Adventures dance company among others. I love dancing and cannot imagine it not being part of my life and it is such a joy to see others getting pleasure from moving too. I am particularly pleased for my Silver Swans ballet students who are all over 55, some of whom are in their 80’s. Classes are very sociable and fun and I have watched as students have improved their posture, balance, and ability to pick up steps. They have also met new people and formed new friendships and have truly inspired me. Like them, I hope that I will still be swanning around in my 80’s!

"I have always wanted to learn ballet but never expected to start in my late 60s. Having heard of Silver Swans, I searched for a teacher and what a find Jacquie was. She is a brilliant and inspiring teacher and her classes are the highlight of my week. While unable to teach in the studio she has worked tirelessly through lockdown to keep us all fit and motivated with her enthusiastic zoom classes."
