Spring into 2019 with Dance Woking

2019 is a great milestone year for Dance Woking as we celebrate 25 years of presenting opportunities to watch, take part and perform dance in Woking and Surrey, working with some extraordinary and highly talented professional and community dance company’s and organisations, people and choreographers. As a way of celebrating we are seeking ways to further enhance our programme of events and activities and the opportunities we provide both our local dance communities and more widely the diverse community that makes up the Borough of Woking.

To help us achieve our ambitions we are introducing a fundraising campaign where we are encouraging individuals, companies and others to donate denominations of £25.00, more details

This Spring, alongside our highly successful community dance platforms Boys, 18 March p10, Woking SLAM, 23 March p18, we welcome Alexander Whitley Dance Company to Woking performing 8 Minutes, 21 March, p16, their outreach includes ‘What If…’ a solar science project aimed at year 5 primary schools supported by Ernest Cook Trust; as well as a series of dance classes p4-p8.
