Dance Trip to see Nutcracker at Sadlers Wells

It has been extremely challenging organising a dance trip recently due to closures and show cancellations as a result of COVID, but finally on December 15th 2021 a group of over 50 students travelled to Sadler’s Wells Theatre, one of the world’s leading dance venues to watch the English choreographer, Matthew Bourne’s notorious production of Nutcracker!

Nutcracker! follows the traditional story but with a twist. We watched Clara’s bittersweet journey from a darkly comic Christmas Eve at Dr. Dross’ Orphanage, through a shimmering, ice-skating winter wonderland to the scrumptious candy kingdom of Sweetieland, influenced by the lavish Hollywood musicals of the 1930’s.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The student’s made Bushey Meads very proud during this trip. They were brilliantly behaved and extremely respectful while watching the 2 hour performance, this was also noticed by three members of the public who came over to congratulate myself and them on how wonderful they were.

I look forward to the next dance trip!

Enjoy the pictures and following quotes from some of the students after the performance had finished:

“My favourite bit were the costumes! They were so bold and colourful and showed the characters personalities really clearly.”

“Oh my gosh. That. Was. Amazing!”

“The dancer’s were so talented and must’ve worked very hard to make the choreography look so perfect. They looked like they were floating!”

“I want to dance like that!”

“If I were to be one character from the show I want to be one of the marshmallows. They were bouncy and funny…and their costumes looked super fluffy.”
