Monday 18th November saw the eagerly anticipated New Adventures Doorstep Duets Film premiere and we can’t wait to share it with you.
In August, Dance Woking partnered with Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures to connect communities and individuals who have been isolating due to Covid19. Over two days our team visited 18 different venues in and around Woking bringing the Doorstep Duet tour of live dance to so many within our community. We visited care homes, assisted living venues, residential settings, school activity clubs and saw over 350 people benefit from the performance. Watching the reactions of the lucky audience members was so inspiring and we were thrilled to bring dance back into so many of their lives again.
New Adventures captured some amazing footage throughout their nationwide tour and we are thrilled to be able to finally share it with you.
