Dance Woking were once again thrilled to be able to offer a holiday club provision over the festive season in collaboration with Active Surrey’s Club4 scheme.
The Hunky Dory Christmas Club was a roaring success with participants learning festive party dances, creating tree decorations, making Apple Berry Crumble for pudding and learning some well-being skills to keep in their toolkit for future use.
The Club4 Scheme requires attendees to be provided with healthy meals, physical activity and enrichment opportunities. As part of the enrichment side, we used snack time as an opportunity to create Christmas themed rice cakes with wise choice toppings (apple slices as eyes, pretzels as ears etc). The participants got incredibly creative and turned rice cakes into snowmen, pokemon and even Christmas trees!
The sessions before Christmas culminated in a mini Christmas party complete with temporary tattoos, face paint, dancing, games and disco lights. After Christmas, the provision focused on postive affirmations for a New Year Calendar and Winter Olympic themed dances!
It was wonderful to see some new faces join us from the local community whilst also seeing previous attendees return to develop their love and knowledge of dance.
We are currently preparing our Easter Holiday Club provision. If you’d like to hear more, please visit the Hunky Dory Easter Club page.
This programme is possible as a result of funding from Surrey County Council. Club4 is Surrey County Council’s (SCC’s) response to the government’s Holiday Activities and Food initiative, designed to provide healthy meals, physical activity and enrichment opportunities to children and young people in receipt of free school meals during longer holidays. Coordinated by Active Surrey for SCC, free places will be provided during the Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays.
