Hi, I’m Fiona,

 I’m passionate about sharing my love and knowledge of dance with others. Dance has been part of my life since I was about three! I have always loved the feeling of dancing, it's so uplifting and expressive as well as a great way to work and challenge your body.

After training in dance and performing arts I went on to work as a professional dancer. I'm a qualified dance and fitness teacher and look forward to sharing my experience and enthusiasm for dance with you!

Have you always wanted to try ballet or take it up again if you did it as a child?

Silver Swan Ballet classes could be for you!

Ballet is not only a great physical activity helping with posture, balance and strength it's wonderful for wellbeing too, participants say they feel calm and energised after class.

So in my 60’s, with some trepidation but loads of enthusiasm I enrolled in Silver Swans and with Fiona’s patient and detailed  teaching have finally fulfilled my dream! I’m still not very coordinated but Fiona makes us all feel like ballerinas with her constant encouragement and carefully choreographed sequences, with modifications that take into account personal flexibility and strength.

 Fiona is an amazing teacher.  The classes are very interesting and I can easily follow the moves and the exercises she is demonstrating. Time passes by very very quickly, the class is very uplifting and by the end of it I feel like a real dancer 🙂

That first class was an utter revelation. I enjoyed the movement and loved the music, but I hadn’t expected to feel so relaxed and full of joy afterwards. Classes have also improved my flexibility and posture.  Friday mornings are the highlight of my week!
