Whilst our theatres are closed, we plan to keep you inspired and entertained at home with our pioneering digital content.
On stage is where our dancers truly come alive; bodies flow in elegant arcs, limbs sweep seamlessly through space, and eyes sparkle in the spotlight. But at Scottish Ballet, the screen is also our stage.
During these strange times, experience Scottish Ballet in the comfort of your home. Our SBTV page is packed with award-winning films, invigorating tutorials and behind-the-scenes documentaries.
In the coming weeks we’ll also be creating new, invigorating, digital dance experiences to share with you online. Stay tuned!
In times such as these, it is even more important than usual to extend a hand to the community around us and find ways to share experiences and spark joy.
In a regular week at Scottish Ballet, our Dance Health department run several classes for people living with Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and dementia, as well as Regenerate classes for people aged over 60 to exercise body and mind, and build strength, technique and creative movement. These programmes have grown since 2012 to form the backbone of many people’s exercise regimens and social calendars, which is why we are committed to offering a digital version during these challenging times of self-isolation.
From Monday to Friday, we’re inviting everyone to join us on Facebook Live to dance together! Each day’s class will be tailored to the specific needs of its respective community group, but everyone is welcome to join in with any class. Don’t worry if you can’t make the live stream, all of our classes will be available on Facebook to catch-up.
