Elevate® Dance Health classes aim to support the physical and mental wellbeing of people living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

This programme, which is the first of its kind in the UK, was developed in partnership with MS specialists, University of Florida, Georgetown University, MS Society Scotland and MS Revive.

How do classes help?

Research has shown that these classes can reduce fatigue and improve balance and walking. For more information visit: Dance Health Research.

What can I expect?

The classes are a fun chance for you to explore your creativity, expression, musicality, fluidity, balance and posture.

Our highly experienced dance health team will support you, and you are welcome to bring a friend, partner or carer to join in too. New participants are always welcome to join at any point during the term and can take part seated or standing.

As with all Scottish Ballet Health programmes, classes include social time after the session to connect with others with lived experience of MS, and to build friendships and a community of support.

How can I get involved?

Choose between weekly in-person, monthly or on demand classes. Online classes are held on zoom. For this the dancers will need a computer or mobile device that can access the internet. You will be emailed the link before each session.
