Below is an excerpt from an interview where Matthew Bourne describes the kind of dancers that he is looking for in New Adventures Auditions.

"What I look for is a passion for movement, because often I'm looking for performers who will eventually need to act as well as dance. And I believe that the passion of wanting to give to an audience—to connect, to show them what you're trying to say—is the first steppingstone toward acting. Also, I look for people who have an individual attitude toward what they do. And that's because if you're telling stories onstage, it needs to look like the real world. Particularly if you want your work to connect with a large audience; they need to be able to relate to the people they see on stage. So I try to get as big a range as possible of shapes, sizes, looks and background."
