Re:Connect is a series of online dance workshops for the over 55s. Delve into Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker! and get your bodies moving!
These online workshops, for the over 55s, led by New Adventures Dance Artist Emily Piercy, will begin with a gentle warm up to mobilise your joints and stretch your muscles and then you will have the chance to learn choreography from Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker! This will be followed by guided creative tasks where you will make your own movement based on the choreography learnt.
The workshop sessions will take place:
- Wed 3rd Nov, 4pm-5.30pm

All the sessions will focus on a different section of the production so feel free to book for one or all!

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."
