Dance Woking would like to thank those of you who have already applied to take part in ‘Party in the Park’. Unfortunately with the rapid progress and impact of COVID-19 we are unable to proceed with our planned Summer activity.
Woking Borough Council has advised ‘in light of the Coronavirus and the emerging national picture. Underlying what we do is the safety and well-being of the community and the safety and well-being of our staff. Whilst we aspire to “business as usual” the reality is that it cannot be.
The “Celebrate Woking” activities have been terminated. This means that the key activities which used Council resources or facilities will not be programmed or permitted during 2020. The only event that remains programmed is Remembrance Sunday on 8 November.’
As we adapt and adjust to the new reality the welfare of our artistes, team, audiences, community remains paramount. Over the coming weeks we will be getting in touch and updating our website and ways of working and look forward to working with on a new way of working and what we can offer.
Highlights from 2019
2019 signified a number of celebrations, both Encounters and Party in the Park were used to highlight and showcase the variety of dance in Woking and Surrey as well as some of the community projects and activities we were running. 2019 saw Dance Woking start our 25 Years of Dance in Woking celebrations using a carnival style parade to get the party started.
