November 2023

After performing several times for Chance to Dance, a special needs dance school, and having seen how excited their dancers were by our tap dancing, we decided to pull together tap shoes and taps so that their dancers could have a go too!

The husband of Silver Swan, Catherine, made some fab tap boards for the wheelchair dancers’ laps, whilst Silver Swan Anne knitted mittens for hand tapping! Dancia International kindly donated lots of brand-new children’s tap shoes, whilst people all across the community passed us their retired pairs.

They have all now been collected and the dancers are super excited to start tapping! We can’t wait to see footage of them in action!

November 2023

On Wednesday 1st November for the very first time the Silver Swans at 'Dance with Sonia Brown' shared a rare 'fly on the wall' glimpse into one of their ballet classes, in honour of World Ballet Day 2023.

For 10 years the top professional ballet companies have live-streamed their classes and rehearsals for the world to see, and this year we decided to do the same!

We’re hoping it gives reassurance to people who’ve always wanted to try ballet but have found the thought of taking the first step too daunting. From the comfort of their own home, everyone will be able to see the level of ballet we get up to, and what sort of people attend. Hopefully it’ll inspire people to start dancing, as do the professionals on the live streams, but on a more attainable level.

Head over to our Instagram @dancewithsoniabrown or Facebook @silverswanswithsoniabrown to check it out!

Here's what we've been up to...
