In early January, twelve of our Silver Swans attended a workshop hosted by Matthew Bourne's New Adventures, at The Lowry in Salford.
The workshop was based on the current production of Matthew Bourne's Cinderella - the timeless love story, set in the Second World War.
We were delighted that seven of our Silver Swans were chosen to join a performing company for a collaboration between Matthew Bourne and the Imperial War Museum.
The Silver Swans (aged 57-80) will integrate with primary school children, responding to wartime stories and photographs in the museum's collections that evoke themes of family, evacuation and community.
They will attend regular rehearsals, creating and learning dance choreography for the performances on 17th March 2018 at 11am, 12pm, 1.30pm and 3pm at the Imperial War Museum North, Manchester.
