Silver Swans Ballet Greenock

 Silver Swans Greenock

Silver Swans Ballet Greenock was started in November 2013. This follows on from a successful trial by Royal Academy of Dance in Glasgow.

Silver Swans Ballet Greenock is now the third part of Inverclyde's only Royal Academy of Dance School of Classical Ballet- Elite Academy of Dance.

Founded in 2009 by Julie Gunn who had just qualified as a Royal Academy of Dance Classical Ballet Teacher, Elite Academy of Dance started Ballet Classes in Inverclyde Academy, Greenock.

Ballet Classes were offered to students from age 3 and over. Within a short period of time each class began to fill up and more and more Ballet Lessons were required.

As a result of this Julie decided to open up her own studio in 2010. The new studio located in Greenock's West End provided the perfect environment to teach Classical Ballet.

Students who attend Elite Academy of Dance work towards Royal Academy Exams and hold a yearly performance at the end of the summer term.

Demand for further intensive Classical Ballet Training saw the formation of Alba Ballet in 2012. Alba Ballet is open to students from all over Scotland. Ballet Classes for Alba Ballet are held every second Sunday and Ballet Lessons last for 4 hours. Places for Alba are by audition only. Alba Ballet is currently working towards a full length production of Nutcracker for November 2014. Alba has students from Bathgate, Glasgow, Paisley, Renfrew, Largs and of course Inverclyde.

Silver Swans is now the latest and third addition to Elite Academy of Dance. After one week, the first class is already full and a second class is now being added.

We hope the initial success of Silver Swans Greenock continues and that it becomes an integral part of the Classical Ballet tuition that is on offer to the people of Inverclyde.

Elite now has Ballet Classes for 3 year olds right through to students who are over 80 !!!!
