Photo & Film shoot at Heather Farm

Its never a dull moment at Dance Woking!

On Wednesday morning Dance Woking joined dancers from First Dance Studios and 4 scooter riders, to put together a short promo film for this year’s Party in the Park.

Despite the mixed weather we experienced during filming: sunshine, rain, hail plus it was VERY cold! We had lots of fun at Heather Farm, Horsell using dresses supplied by Surrey Arts Wardrobe as well as some hidden treasures from the dancers own wardrobes!

With Emma Harris from First Dance Studios overseeing the choreography, film direction from Deborah Hickman, Woking Borough Council; Jane Bell, Trustee (one of the dancers – can you spot her?); as well as Sam McCaffrey from Dance Woking in an assistant mode we look forward to seeing the edits on Woking Borough Council’s Celebrate Woking webpage soon!

In the meantime some pictures:

ONLY 1 day to go – State of Emergency – Where Is Home?


Tuesday 9 May, Rhoda McGaw Theatre, Woking, 7.30pm

TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE – Please come and support us and see this inspiring dance musical

Where Is Home? is a dance musical that explores and investigates themes of global human migration and displacement. Live music.

Where did you come from? How did you get to this point in your life? Where are you heading?

Across the globe, from the dawn of civilization, migration has been a definitive and enduring feature of humanity. All humans in every social formation and society have recent or distant ancestors who trekked, wandered, or journeyed to new locations as a result of cataclysmic crisis or external demands that compelled relocation for survival and success.

Where Is Home? is suitable for 11 years and older

The story: Soweto, late 80s. A young man struggles against the security forces, confronts tribal tensions and deals with the death of his own mother. He falls in love with a girl from the wrong neighbourhood and together they decide to run away from home and everything they have ever known…
