Dazzle Days

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
  • A qualified Dance Woking Outreach team member will lead the sessions

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.
