In 2019 Birmingham Hippodrome are celebrating 10 years of New Adventures Curtain Raisers, with Matthew Bourne’s award-winning dance-theatre company. In February, we want to highlight the positive impact our Curtain Raisers projects have had on past participants.

If you have been involved in our New Adventures / Birmingham Hippodrome Curtain Raisers we want to know what you’re doing now. If you have an interesting story, we want to hear from you.

Have you continued your dance training? Perhaps you now work with a professional company or are in a teaching role? Or are you applying some of the skills you learnt to a career outside of dance?

We want you to share your experience with us at our celebratory event next 8 February 2019 so if you would like to be involved, please get in touch with us with your story at along with the following information –

  • Full Name
  • Production you were part of
  • Year of your Curtain Raiser experience
  • College you attend at the time

Please register your interest by Friday 21 December 2018. Although we cannot guarantee all stories will be used, all participants will be entered into a prize draw to win two complimentary tickets to Pepperland by the Mark Morris Dance Company in March 2019.
