Swan School

As part of New Adventures' continuous work to nurture and support emerging talent, members of our Young Cast of Matthew Bourne's World Premiere production of Romeo and Juliet were invited to attend a week-long intensive in July 2019.

Working with New Adventures Associate Artistic Director, Etta Murfitt and Resident Artist Kerry Biggin, the young dancers were given exclusive insight in to the working practices of New Adventures and offered a week focused on audition technique. 

Alongside New Adventures, invited industry professionals delivered workshops and took part in panel discussions to help facilitate the development of this group as emerging dancers. Inviting this select group of dancers for Swan School 2019 is part of our commitment to develop the Young Cast of Romeo and Juliet

I would just like to express my gratitude to New Adventures for the intensive. It was a wonderfully inspiring experience and the efforts the company goes through in order to provide such opportunities are greatly appreciated and respected.
