Scottish Ballet has been developing its dance health & wellbeing programme since 2015, including the national Dance for Parkinson’s Scotland (DPS) project and a dementia friendly dance project ‘Time to Dance’. Our experienced dance education professionals are specialists in dance health and we now have a full time Dance Health Co-ordinator in post – a progressive first for ballet companies in the UK.

Our research methods and reports are becoming increasingly significant with requests to present findings at international events and conferences.
