Are you looking for new ways to move?

SB Duet is a digital dance resource for people with reduced mobility to share with their companions or carers.
Watch Scottish Ballet perform before being invited to move your body gently to music. Choose from two 10-minute films as well as two audio resources.  

Duet can be safely accessed by those in bed, at the bedside or seated – in care homes, hospitals or at home. These resources have been created for people living with neurological conditions but can be used by anyone with reduced mobility. As with all SB Health resources, Duet can also be enjoyed independently. 

We are actively seeking your feedback. Your support in our research will help us improve SB Duet and ensure more people can benefit from Dance Health. Let us know what you think.

‘We are delighted to work in partnership with Scottish Ballet and care homes on this very exciting project which will not only support physical activity but also promote wellbeing and help people do what matters to them the most.’
