“The classes have been easy to follow and achievable at home.”
– Maureen, age 71 – online Silver Swan®
“I don’t care if I weigh a ton, hunched over and wobbly on my feet. I am transformed every class into something beautiful, the music touches my soul again, my legs are stronger, my arms do beautiful movements”
– Chris, age 73 – online Silver Swan®

Before joining any session, please check that you have a clear space, free from any obstacles (it is recommended that you have a space of 2×2 metres). Please also check that your flooring is suitable and so your choice of footwear doesn’t make it slippy.
Only do what you know is safe for you to do and do not push beyond your capabilities. If you are unsure, please speak with your doctor or medical professional first.
