Take part in our workshop programme created to accompany our tour of Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella 

Following the success of The Red Shoes, New Adventures returns with one of our most popular and beloved productions. Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella – a thrilling and evocative love story, set in London during the Second World War.



Book a workshop for your Primary or Secondary School students to explore themes from Cinderella. Created to inspire young people regardless of background or experience, with a passion for movement, our bespoke dance workshops can be tailored to any age group.

Two New Adventures dancers will lead a practical session where participants will get a chance to explore Matthew Bourne’s unique storytelling and choreographic language, learn repertoire from the show and delve into creative tasks used to create the piece. This is followed by a Q&A session.

Workshop Fees (excluding travel costs)

  • Full Day: £650.00

Curtain Raisers

Perform Live on a New Adventures Stage

An incredible chance to work with dancers from the New Adventures company to create an original piece of choreography in response to Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella and perform it for an audience.

Our curtain raisers give young aspiring dancers the opportunity to work with our world-renowned company through the exploration and development of their technical and creative skills.

Their work will result in the creation of a short piece, as a response to the themes and movement discovered in Cinderella, culminating in a performance on stage before the show.

All workshops subject to availability.
