Silver Swans® Teacher Training & Licensing Initiative (2017 Pilot)

The RAD's new training and licensing initiative is an exciting business opportunity for experienced dance teachers to extend their expertise and offer adult ballet through branded Silver Swans classes.

Drawing upon the RAD’s comprehensive research program centered on older dancers, this offers a great new business opportunity. Successful completion of the training entitles teachers the exclusive right (renewed annually) to deliver Silver Swans classes, along with the right to use the Silver Swans Licensee logo (above) and branded materials.

Register your interest for future training.

Become a Silver Swan! Look for the Silver Swans Licensee logo as a sign of quality and to ensure you get the best possible dance experience!
