Renowned for its versatility and applauded for its exciting, diverse and dynamic repertoire, Scottish Ballet, Scotland's vibrant national dance company, marks its 40th anniversary with a selection of striking and beautiful images that capture perfectly the chic style of a company whose powerful athleticism and incredible personality continues to attract acclaim worldwide.

This retrospective, replete with anecdotal commentary on the company's history and the people that helped make it, is a must for both ballet fans and admirers of stunning photography alike.

Scottish Ballet was established in Scotland in 1969. Its broad repertoire includes new versions of the classics, seminal pieces from the 20th-century modern ballet canon, signature pieces by living choreographers, and new commissions.


  • "This inspiringly written, stunningly illustrated celebration follows a very special company through one of the great artistic adventures of our time." The Scotsman
  • "The images of the dancers are beautiful – each pose a work of art. But as well as capturing all the grace and athleticism on stage, Brennan lifts the curtain on the blood, sweat and tears – not to mention cracked mirrors and cut feet – that go into creating such seemingly effortless performances" Press and Journal
