  • Who are we?

    – Sage Dance Company was founded in Spring 2010 by choreographer and former First Soloist with the Royal Ballet Company,
    Simon Rice.

    – a unique, community, classical ballet-based dance company for those aged 55 and above

    – we have 16 members, both men and women, with a wide and varied experience of ballet and other forms of dance.

    Our aims

    – to nurture health and well-being by keeping our minds and bodies active through dance

    – to keep learning and improving our knowledge, creativity and technique

    – to strive to choreograph and create new work that we are proud to perform to a wide audience

    – to inspire older people to take up, return to, or keep dancing as late in life as possible.

    About us

    • Dance is our passion and keeps us younger, happier and connected to a shared community.
    • Dance is wonderful for our bodies, our minds and our memories and this is supported by research.
    • Older people can offer something different and valuable to the world of dance.
    • We bring our rich life experiences to what we do.We regularly perform at a variety of festivals and venues in and around London and are keen to take our work further afield.
    • We actively seek to learn new skills.  Currently we are learning to choreograph our own work under Simon Rice’s expert direction.
