Follow in the footsteps of a dancer with a behind-the-scenes tour at Scottish Ballet’s purpose-built headquarters. Wander through Wardrobe, take a peek into Production, and see the studios where modern ballet is created and rehearsed.
Scottish Ballet was founded by Peter Darrell in 1969, and will celebrate its 50th anniversary next year. In June 2009 it moved to purpose-built national headquarters at the Tramway international arts centre. All aspects of the building were carefully designed, from the locally sourced Douglas Fir corridors to the natural ventilation in the rehearsal studios.
As Scotland’s national dance company, we aim to move people by sharing our passion and creating exceptional dance. Our mission is to inspire on stage and beyond, showcasing our nation’s creativity and bringing ballet to the widest possible audience.
Our award-winning performances take place all over Scotland – from our biggest cities to our most remote communities. We also tour the world, promoting Scotland’s diverse and pioneering spirit far and wide.
