Feathered friends find Silver lining in COVID
This International Day of Older Persons we’d like to introduce you to some Silver Swans in Bury, UK and Brisbane, Australia who have danced side by side in a special pilot project from the RAD during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Dancers from Janet Lomas School of Dancing in Bury, Lancashire were introduced to dancers from Ascot School of Dance in Brisbane in a scheme that paired Silver Swans schools around the world to share experience, broaden horizons and combat the loneliness of the pandemic. Silver Swans teachers Johanna Hadley and Marilyn Culprit contacted us to share their stories.
“They’ve loved getting to know each other and talk about what they’re working on in their classes. I think that for many of my Silver Swans, it has been something different and exciting that has been a welcome distraction from lockdowns.”
