FROM dancing on stage with a professional company to have a Bollywood performance take over a Pollokshields street.

The public vote has now closed after Scottish Ballet received 444 imaginative wishes from across Scotland and beyond.

More than 101,000 ballots were cast for the company's Make A Wish campaign.

And the most popular will now go before a panel of celebrity judges who will choose five wishes to be made true.

CEO and Artistic Director of Scottish Ballet, Christopher Hampson, said: "We are overwhelmed by the number of people who have taken part in our Make a Wish campaign.

"We are humbled by the range of creative, heartwarming and inspiring stories that have been shared with us.

"We will be delighted to thank people for their continued support of Scottish Ballet by helping five wishes come true in the company’s 50th anniversary year."

Scottish Ballet aims to give back to the country that has supported it throughout its 50 year history.

Dame Darcey Bussell, Susan Calman, Fred MacAulay, Janice Forsyth, Christopher Hampson and Principal Dancer Christopher Harrison will cast the deciding vote on which five wishes will come true throughout 2019.

Wishes ranged from a mum asking for Scottish Ballet's dancers to help her decorate her home with a Swan Lake theme for her daughter's birthday to a dance teacher who would love to perform with a professional company for the first time in her career.

Caring friends made nominations for little girls who are having treatment for cancer to appear on stage with Scottish Ballet.

Another wish asked for Scottish Ballet to create pop up Bollywood inspired contemporary ballet in outdoor spaces in Pollokshields with dance along the length of Albert Drive.

The wish, from Kate E Deeming, read: "These performances would be created for and with the children in the local community. I believe such a project would not only enhance the lives of the local residents but also challenge and enhance the repertoire of Scottish Ballet.

"I wish Scottish ballet to challenge themselves, to open their doors, to dance on the streets, to dance with the community in which it is based, to learn to expand and to grow for and with us for better selves, better communities and a better world."

Scottish Ballet’s 50th anniversary year will also see three world premieres including Dextera by Sophie Laplane, The Crucible choreographed by Helen Pickett and The Snow Queen by Christopher Hampson, alongside Elite Syncopations by Sir Kenneth MacMillan, a Digital Season of work and the ambitious Five in Five Campaign.

Dame Darcey Bussell said: "I am excited to be on the judging panel for Scottish Ballet’s Make A Wish campaign to help share the magic of ballet with people across Scotland in the company’s 50th year.

"I look forward to seeing lots of wonderful wish ideas and am sure there will be some really personal and imaginative ones for us to choose from."
