Graham’s The Family Dairy has been named as official health sponsor of Scottish Ballet, in a year-long partnership which is the first of its kind for the dance company.

Dancers at Scottish Ballet will be gifted with products from the Graham’s range, including milk, yogurts and cheese, to help keep their bodies in peak condition from studio to stage.

Graham’s will also work with Scottish Ballet to create a new series of short instructional clips entitled ‘Ballet Bites’. The 90 second videos will guide viewers in a series of exercises designed to increase strength and flexibility. The clips will be live on the Graham’s YouTube and social channels early 2016.

Scottish Ballet’s Principal Dancer, Sophie Martin (pictured), visited the Graham’s Family Dairy farm in Stirling where she met members of the Graham family – as well as some of the farm’s newest arrivals, including four month old calf Odette (also pictured).

Carol Graham, Marketing Director at Graham’s The Family Dairy said: “We are delighted to announce our new health partnership with Scottish Ballet.  We’re a family business with dairy farming in our blood and we know that the milk that goes into all of our products is packed with calcium and other essential nutrients, which are important to everyone, especially dancer’s bodies.”

Christopher Hampson, CEO/Artistic Director of Scottish Ballet, added: “We are delighted that Graham’s The Family Dairy have come on board as Scottish Ballet’s health partner. The health, wellbeing and nutrition of our dancers is of primary importance to us and I am thrilled that Graham’s will be gifting our dancers products as this will enable them to maintain peak fitness.”
