About Scottish Ballet

Scottish Ballet are Scotland’s national dance company and their mission is to inspire on stage and beyond. Their artistic vision is to create bold, adventurous performances rooted in strong classical technique.

They aim to nurture the talent of tomorrow; supporting dancers, choreographers and a wide range of artists and communities, and their goal is to inspire excellence and creativity in everyone and bring dance to people they haven’t reached before.

One of their core values is innovation: they have the confidence to find new ways and explore new ideas. They face any challenge with a belief that they can find a way. They stay curious, adventurous and playful - their creativity thrives because they accept that failure can lead to success. This is what it means to be a pioneer.
