Dance Woking have been working with Horsell Bangladeshi Women’s Group over the last two months to work towards a presentation of food at our event ‘Different Pasts, Shared Future’ with Woking Council. The event is on Tuesday 19th June featuring a number of community groups and schools that Dance Woking has been working with in order to celebrate National Refugee Week!
The Bangaladeshi Women’s Group have been working with professional dance artist, Amina Khayyam, in weekly sessions with the theme of ‘home’. They will be using food to express their home, giving everyone the opportunity to taste some delicious homemade dishes at the event!
‘The group are very much enjoying the sessions and the class has been hugely popular. Every week the class has grown in size through word of mouth. The women have found the class to be physically beneficial, mentally stimulating and hugely fun!’ Amina Khayyam
The group have been working together with creative movement and discussion and has been so successful that it has been extended to be a 90 minute class! The group have had a break in classes during Ramadan, but will be meeting once more before they present their dishes at the event on the 19th June.
