Dance GB - The Olympic Project: Scottish Ballet, National Dance Company Wales, English National Ballet (ENB)
The UK's three national dance companies perform together for the first time. Scottish Ballet, National Dance Company Wales and English National Ballet are joining forces for the first time in a ground-breaking national celebration of dance inspired by the 2012 London Olympics and the coming together of the British nations for 'Team GB'.
Each performance, the three companies will dance specially commissioned work from world-leading choreographers. Martin Lawrance (Richard Alston Dance Company) is collaborating with Scottish Ballet, National Dance Company Wales will perform a new production by Christopher Bruce (Rambert Dance Company, Royal Ballet, English National Ballet), and Itzik Galili (Netherlands Dance Theatre, Rambert, National Dance Company Wales) is creating a piece for English National Ballet.
Dance GB is a unique opportunity to see three national companies perform specially commissioned work by international choreographers, each piece celebrating the breathtaking power and athleticism of these incredible dancers.
Dance GB will also feature the screening of a short film created as part of Dancing Parallel, a national project run by the three national companies bringing young people together to create a unique performance combining ballet, contemporary dance and parkour.
Scotland's National Dance Company and the UK's fourth largest company, employing 36 professional dancers, 30 support staff and a part-time freelance orchestra of up to 70 musicians.

Formerly known as Diversions, this company was established in 1983. From its roots as a small-scale touring dance company with a reputation for innovation, showmanship and humour, they have grown to become a National Performing Arts Company for Wales; they commission and premiere work from some of the world's most exciting choreographers.
National Dance Company Wales tour dates
English National Ballet is one of the world's great ballet companies. The original 1950s vision for the Company - to take classical ballet of the highest quality to the widest geographical audience, at a price everyone can afford - remains the cornerstone of the Company's philosophy today.
