We held this year's A Summer Adventure on Wednesday 8 August – Friday 10 August 2018, attended by 28 dancers.
This three day workshop was a brilliant opportunity for invited dancers to delve deeper into our unique and iconic repertoire and learn from leading company dancers to develop and explore technical prowess, storytelling skills and performance excellence.
The intensive was by invitation only so that we were able to work closely with a small group, allowing us to get to know each dancer in a more personal setting.
This year’s A Summer Adventure was a rare opportunity to work with our Associate Artistic Director, Etta Murfitt and members of the company. We worked on duets from a number of the New Adventures shows, such as Nutcracker!, The Car Man and Sleeping Beauty. The week culminated in a sharing.
Previous A Spring and Summer Adventure alumni include current company dancers João Carolino, Paris Fitzpatrick and Cordelia Braithwaite, as well as many dancers about to tour this year with Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake.
