Scottish Ballet is about more than just today’s performance. We want to create ballet that makes a lasting impact, develops dance as an art form and improves the lives of future generations.
Developing the Art of Dance
We've raised the standard of professional training in Scotland to support the future of ballet – and dance more generally.
Our Associate Programme inspires young dancers to go beyond the limits of a regular dance class and aim for the top levels of their art.
Our BA Modern Ballet degree, delivered in partnership with the Royal Conservatoire Scotland, gives aspiring professional dancers access to world-class training here in Scotland.
Our MMus (Piano for Dance) degree, is the only course of its kind in the world. Also accredited by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, it combines professional teaching with practical training, and prepares graduate pianists for a career in the world of professional dance.
Our support for dancers continues long after they hang up their pointe shoes. Whether they want to progress into teaching, choreography, or another related role, we’re on hand to support their professional transition.
