Who we are
Scottish Ballet is Scotland’s National Dance Company and presents a wide range of high-quality dance to audiences across Scotland, the UK and abroad, with strong classical technique at the root of all its work. This includes new versions of classic titles, as well as seminal modern works from 20th century choreographers, signature pieces by living choreographers, and new commissions.
The company regularly tours to large-scale venues in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness and periodically undertakes small-scale touring across Scotland. Strategic partnerships have been formed with the leading venues in the capital cities of the UK’s other nations, i.e. Belfast, Cardiff and London. The company has an established relationship with Edinburgh International Festival and continues to pursue opportunities abroad.
As well as presenting in conventional dance venues, Scottish Ballet is continually seeking new creative opportunities to promote and showcase its work to the widest possible audience, be it through digital media, in unusual locations, or at one-off events.
Take a look at our recent behind-the-scenes rehearsal film featuring Christopher Hampson, Artistic Director, with Hope Muir, Rehearsal Director, as they work with Scottish Ballet dancers in preparation for the Company's spring 2014 tour of Krzysztof Pastor's Romeo & Juliet.
