The Swan Dance is a piece inspired in The Swan Lake Ballet, created by Russian composer Tchaikovsky.

Matthew Bourne´s version is especially known, because the roles of swans are all danced by men instead of woman.

In addition, this piece is a kind of tribute to Jonathan Ollivier, who was the first dancer for Bourne´s choreography. He died in a motorbike accident hours before he was due to perform on stage.
