Graceful Swans

Building on the same principles of the Come Soar classes, the Graceful Swans class for dancers ages 6-8 uses curriculum based on the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus, along with SCD’s belief that imagination is key in dance! Using poems, stories, creative props and music, these classes are a wonderful introduction – or continuation – for children to the structured, expressive world of dance.
