The final rehearsals on stage at Sadler's Wells before

In November, four pupils auditioned for Matthew Bourne’s dance company and took part in an all day workshop. Recently they found out they had all been succesful and were invited to perform at Sadler’s Wells.

Four pupils took advantage of the opportunity to spend two hours workshopping with the company of Matthew Bourne, one of England’s leading choreographers. The day gave them experience working with a high-level choregrapher and taught them a range of exercises and technical skills used by professionals.

Due to their enthusiasm and skill, all four were invited back. In the second week of January, Year 7′s Obi and Year 9′s Rakim performed a Curtain Raiser on the opening night Bourne’s latest tour, Cinderella, at Sadler’s Wells. The performance previewed some of the sequences used later in the main show.

After the performance, Matthew Bourne himself appeared on stage to encourage the boys to pursue dancing and hopefully follow in his footsteps. He also congratulated the boys on the effort they had shown.
