Woodcroft collaboration with the Royal Opera House
Following last year’s successful partnership with The Unicorn Theatre Woodcroft is about to embark on another high profile arts collaboration; this time with The Royal Opera House. Year 4 will take part in a special programme that celebrates the unique potential of creative dance to build physical skill and unlock imagination and creativity. ‘National Nutcracker’ provides high-quality creative dance classroom resources, designed to inspire imaginative thinking, build skills and enrich pupils’ and teachers’ experience of the art form.
The project also offers an exclusive insight into The Royal Ballet, one of the world’s greatest ballet companies, bringing the professional dance studio into the classroom via a series of short films. Year 4 will also have the opportunity to watch a live performance or cinema screening of The Nutcracker.
