Silver Swans Licensee Training Workshop, Melbourne

Thursday April 11, 2019

This year Victorian Dance Festival (VDF) are thrilled to be offering experienced ballet teachers an exciting business opportunity to extend their expertise and tap into the growing adult dance market thanks to our partners the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD). 

Launched in 2017, the RAD’s Silver Swans initiative offers ballet classes aimed at the over-55s. Silver Swans classes have been developed in response to a growing and discerning mature market and draw on the RAD’s own research into the benefits of dance for older learners. There are now over 300 licensees across the UK, USA and Australia who are delivering Silver SwansTM branded ballet classes. You can undertake Silver Swans Licensee training as part of this year’s VDF against the inspirational backdrop the Rainforest Room at Melbourne Zoo!

If you chose to undertake the training you can also take part in our VDF Vitality teachers day on Friday 12 April at a reduced price, saving a whopping $105 on the standard rate! Also take advantage of the amazing venue and explore Melbourne Zoo free of charge. And if that’s not exciting enough come and enjoy the full VDF weekend at the distinctive Batman Royale! For further details, please visit VDF Vitality Teachers’ Day

Bookings for VDF Vitality Teachers' Day will close on April 1, 2019.


Important: If you are not an RAD Registered Teacher, before you sign up to the licensee training, please first complete the pre-verification form on the RAD website to confirm your eligibility. This form can be submitted at any time throughout the year but must be submitted by the closing date of March 30..
