We present an extraction of the scalar dipole dynamical polarizabilities from proton real Compton scattering (RCS) data below pion-production threshold. The theoretical approach relies on dispersion relations, and on the low-energy expansion and multipole expansion of the scattering amplitude. The statistical analysis is based on the parametric bootstrap technique, that revealed to be crucial to deal with problems inherent to both the low sensitivity of the RCS cross section to the energy dependence of the dynamical polarizabilities and the poor accuracy of the available data sets.
