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’. The world premiere of this unique collaboration takes place in Glasgow, before the tour continues to Cardiff and London.

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.

Experience the breathtaking power and athleticism from the dancers of the UK’s three national companies as they perform specially commissioned work by internationally acclaimed choreographers, Dancing Parallel, screened with the performances, is an awe-inspiring film made by Nic Sandiland featuring teenagers from London, Cardiff and Aberdeen who have been touched by the profound effects of dance and movement, from classical ballet through contemporary dance to the thrilling agility of parkour.
