Dance GB – a collaboration between the three national dance companies, Scottish Ballet, National Dance Company of Wales and English National Ballet, to present a programme of work based on the Olympian ideals of Faster, Higher Stronger– has opened to enthusiastic audiences and four five star reviews in Glasgow.

“It’s so irresistible, it ought to be banal – except that, rather than generating an evening of competitive pyrotechnics, the concept has inspired each of the companies to explore fresh, even surprising options.”
Judith Mackrell, the Guardian, 20 June

“How Team GB fairs in August is still unknown, but for Dance GB, the result is pure gold.”
The Scotsman, 20 June

“..the physicality and athleticism on the bill for Dance GB…would surely impress any national selectors.”
The Independent, 20 June

The programme includes Scottish Ballet in Martin Lawrence’s new work for them – Run for it; National Dance Company Wales in Christopher Bruce’s Dream and Itzik Galili’s work for English National BalletAnd the Earth Shall Bear Again.

Dance GB arrives in London for performances in a Big Top Tent in the grounds of the Old Royal Naval College Greenwich from 4 – 8 July
