Budding Ballerinas

Bransgore Evening WI were delighted to invite Stephanie Constantine-Smith of Silver Swans to our July meeting. She wrote “I wanted to express my sincere thanks to you all, for inviting me to your group to run a Silver Swans ballet session recently. I had a super evening. I was very impressed with the quality of dancing on show from everyone – there are certainly some budding ballerinas in amongst you!  I hope everyone who participated enjoyed it, and it was fabulous to see the two ladies who were seated at the front, joining in.”

Silver Swans is an initiative by the Royal Academy of Dance, to include the over 55’s in ballet. Whether you are an experienced dancer, have briefly dabbled, or a complete novice, all are welcome. Queen Camilla is a Silver Swan and Angela Rippon is the Ambassador of Silver Swans.  I know many of us enjoyed this evening’s  experience and hope the possibility of a class in  Bransgore is achieved.
