Education > Welcome to Birmingham Hippodrome Education Department
By creating new experiences and crossing cultural boundaries within our local communities, Birmingham Hippodrome’s education team continues to offer highly innovative projects to a wide range of participants.
We can support schools to create an enhanced understanding of curricula subjects by creating innovative non-show related workshops and projects based on the workings of an active and busy theatre. These include science, environmental studies, and history discovery days in addition to numeracy, literacy and music. We also offer technical theatre days, careers days and can help design workshops for BTEC Performing Arts modules.
We are always happy to work with teachers to develop bespoke workshops, designed individually for your school.

MATTHEW BOURNE’S SWAN LAKE IS BACK
Thrilling, audacious and totally original, this witty and surprising production has been designed to speak to a modern audience, to excite them and to move them.
Perhaps best-known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble, Matthew Bourne blends dance, style, humour, spectacle, character comedy and mime to create a provocative and powerful Swan Lake for our times.
Re:Bourne the charitable education arm of New Adventures offers groups the opportunity to delve into the production’s themes, characters and iconic choreography.
Participatory workshops follow a basic structure:
· Warm up
· Learning repertoire from Swan Lake
· Creative tasks used by the company to create movement
· Warm down
· Short Q&A with the dancers
This model can be adapted to suit a broad range of ability and experience and can be delivered with more emphasis on learning repertoire or on creative work.
Half day lasts 2 – 3 hours
Available 5 – 14 February 2014 (exluding matinee days)
Avaliable in school or at Birmingham Hippodrome
Up to 25 participants
£300.00 + VAT (plus any travel costs for 2 dancers)
