Dance Woking is delighted to be able to include DAZZLE DAY enrichment activity to our cross-curricular outreach provision this summer in local schools.

Dazzle Days are an ideal enrichment day activity, end of year celebration or a creative approach to curriculum learning. 

The workshop days can involve multiple groups or classes, all participating in short workshops based on a dance style of the school’s choice.

Dance Woking workshops aim to provide the following for your students:

  • Teach them new skills and ways of moving, using choreography and teamwork
  • Allow them to discover, share and gain insight into physical learning and creative approaches to topics and themes
  • Engage young people into the creative arts through dance
  • Widen access to all dance genres
  • Dazzles Days can be delivered between 9am – 3pm to fit in with the school day and your school’s timetable

Ellie Dowling, Engagement Manager said “Dazzle Days are a fantastic opportunity to unite year groups or even the whole school in an immersive, cultural activity. An asset to any enrichment week, our Dazzle days have been extremely popular in the Summer Term. Participants often enter the workshops a little unsure but leave bursting with energy and excitement, only to be followed up with a confidence boosting group performance or parade at the end of the day

Dazzle Days take place between 9am – 3pm, timetables are bespoke and are led by a member of Dance Woking’s Outreach Team.

If you would like more information about our Dazzle days or to find out costs and a breakdown of a typical day please contact Ellie, Engagements Manager.

Rotate Performance Parkour

Fantastic session with Alister & Miranda from Urban Playground Team; we are looking to start a weekly session in January 2018; please contact Kate via email office@dancewoking.com if you are interested in taking part. The sessions are likely to be on a Monday early evening.

For an insight into what the group achieved see below:

October Half Term – Rotate – Performance Parkour Special

Alister & Miranda from The Urban Playground Team led the session; participants had the opportunity to use a scaffold frame to develop technique and performance skills as well as work on small group choreographies and sequences. Lots of high energy was required!

For an insight into the Autumn term go to: Mannequin Challenge

About: The Urban Playground Team perform and teach Performance-Parkour or 2PK . Their teaching is inclusive with an emphasis on ability, not disability working with students of all ages, specialising in working with young people at-risk of social exclusion. Performance-Parkour or 2PK is the integration of Parkour’s movement principles and core values within a performance for an audience, whether live or recorded. It can be considered a choreographic language. Critical to Performance-Parkour is the aim of communicating beyond the skill of the discipline and creating a dialogue with and within its practitioner community and audience. It does not describe a display or demonstration of Parkour.
