Katherine Bett from ThatsSurreyTV came to see Dance Woking team at Ryden’s Hall, Old Woking Community Centre on Monday 29 January taking part in a CPD session led by Michael Kelland from James Wilton Dance Company.
The stereotype is that dancing is graceful, artistic, and just for girls. And it’s a stereotype that can be difficult for teachers to overcome during dance lessons in school. Well, Dance Woking is trying to change all that. They’re putting on a series of outreach events in local schools that are just for boys. Katherine Bett went to a workshop where the outreach teachers were learning the style dance they’ll be teaching.
Boys Platform is on Monday 19 March at Rhoda McGaw Theatre
Leviathan – James Wilton Dance Company – Thursday 22 March
Michael led the dance class sharing movement from James Wilton Dance Company’s latest production Leviathan. Leviathan is based Herman Meville’s story of Moby Dick and features a cast of 7, Wilton’s trademark blend of athletic dance, martial arts, capoeira and partner-work, LEVIATHAN will have you on the edge of your seat. It will leave you gasping for air under the sheer ferocity of movement, all accompanied by a powerful electro-rock soundtrack by Lunatic Soul.
