Scottish Ballet has launched an expanded programme of ballet classes, community engagement programmes and health resources to bring the benefits and joy of dance to everyone this new year. Committed to connecting with communities, Scotland’s national dance company is offering a range of ways to improve physical and mental wellbeing, help alleviate stress on the body, and use creativity to inspire audiences of all ages.
The new programme of adult and children’s ballet classes offer the opportunity to learn from Scottish Ballet’s own company dancers. With a new term of online classes running from February-April, the courses will range from Absolute Beginners to Intermediate, bringing ballet directly into people’s homes. Participants of all abilities will be able to practice and perfect their technique via Zoom, and there are dedicated classes for 10-14 year olds and over 60s too.
