Roger Ascham 'Dancers in Residence'

Following the success of our 'Dancers in Residence' at William Patten and London Fields Primary School we are excited to be bringing this whole school performance project to Roger Ascham Primary School as part of Waltham Forest's events as the first London Borough of Culture in 2019.

Using New Adventures signature story-telling style, two Dance Artists from the company will deliver this unforgettable experience with the whole school, culminating in a performance at Walthamstow's Assembly Hall.

Leading assemblies on gender stereotypes followed by dance workshops, every child at the school will have the chance to take part in this creative dance project and embark on an astonishing journey of discovery.

This will be a very special project as our Artistic Director, Matthew Bourne, grew up in Walthamstow and attended Roger Ascham. We look forward to starting this project in the New Year.


Waltham Forest is the Mayor’s first London Borough of Culture. The year will explore the themes ‘Radicals’, ‘Makers’ and ‘Fellowship’ in a collaboration between local residents, artists and creatives creating a once in a life time celebration of the place we call ‘home’. Waltham Forest, London Borough of Culture 2019 will shine a light on the character, diversity and cultures of the borough, the things we have in common and the things that make us different, a year-long celebration of the real cultures of London by the people who live here.
