Dance health volunteers
Scottish Ballet needs your help
We are always interested in hearing from people who would like to help out at our classes for people living with neurological conditions. Our volunteers are an integral part of making sure that dance health participants are safe and supported in the studio.
[Volunteering for Scottish Ballet, I have] learned more about challenges facing people living with dementia, had fun, learned some basic ballet moves, met new people, discovered that Scottish Ballet has offers for people who aren’t ballet dancers and attended a ballet performance.

What do Scottish Ballet volunteers do?
Our volunteers assist by setting up the spaces, meeting and greeting participants, preparing and serving refreshments at the social time, helping to provide practical support and partnering participants in dancing when required.
No previous experience is required and training is provided, however an interest in dance health is essential.
Classes primarily take place at Scottish Ballet headquarters in the south side of Glasgow, but there are also volunteering opportunities in Perth and Orkney.
Choose from classes during the week or at weekends, depending on your schedule. You do not need to be available for every class, but we do need a commitment of 3 or more sessions per block.
Mondays (SB Elevate® – multiple sclerosis): 9.15am – 12.15pm
Tuesdays (Dance for Parkinson’s): 10.30am – 1.30pm or 12.00 to 3pm
Sundays (Time to Dance® – dementia/ memory loss): 1 – 4.30pm
The team at Scottish Ballet put their hearts and soul to make life easier for everyone who attends. Everyone gains – the participants, staff and volunteers.
