Dance Woking is excited to be producing its 2nd Surrey Schools SLAM! A schools dance platform, where groups in Woking & Surrey will be able to share work completed this term in front of family and friends in the hip hop/street style of dance.

Dance Woking’s outreach team has been working with partner schools to create pieces using the stimulus of the urban environment as their inspiration. The process encourages participants to input their ideas into the piece created and develop some of their own moves based on skills taught and their own experience.

This activity forms part of Dance Woking’s Inspiring Learning Programme and is an important area of our work. The dance clubs have been set-up to:

  • Improve the participants self-esteem and give them a new focus
  • Help improve the participants fitness, health & wellbeing
  • Learn new movement skills
  • Improve the participants understanding of teamwork
  • Through shared experience build a community feel within group
  • Encourage mutual support and respect
  • Provide an activity for the participants to do within their spare time
  • Raise aspirations for young people

If you are school that is interested in taking part in the Surrey Schools SLAM, please contact us for more information.
