Dance Woking is an innovative dance organisation which provides high quality opportunities to

watch, perform and take part in dance, providing new experiences that we hope inspire artists,

audiences, participants and communities.

On Thursday 13 February Dance Woking set off on a mini schools tour with two male dancers

from ZoieLogic Dance Theatre Luke & Sam and Dance Woking's team made up of Lauren

Straker, a student at Chichester University who is currently on a work placement with Dance

Woking; Sameena Iqbal, recently started as a Communications Apprentice and Executive

Producer Sam McCaffrey.

The first school visited was Kings International where 32 students plus two dance teachers

took part in the workshop and then enjoyed 12 minutes of an exert of 'Murmur'. The workshops

were highly energetic and involved contact and balancing exercises. The pupils were really

inspired and mesmerized by the structure that is Murmur!

Next stop was Woking College, due to the building works the college could only host a

workshop, however the 11 students participating were put through their paces trying out some

company repertoire as well as some partner contact and balances. The students finished off

the session with a question and answer session with ZoieLogic dancers.

Finally the tour went to Winston Churchill, an after school session with 22 gifted and talented

pupils. Once again the pupils showed how they were able and wiling to try out some typical

ZoieLogic moves to great effect. The day finished with another short exert of 'Murmur'. Of the

day one parent wrote: Just wanted to say a big Thank You for organising the Dance Workshop

that my son took part in today. As soon as he got home his first comment was "Oh my god the

dance workshop was amazing!" Throughout the evening he has continued to give his

enthusiastic account of every moment, along with a couple of demonstrations too!! We are now

going to bed with headaches!! Thank you again for what was clearly an inspirational workshop.'

With 65 participants the day was very inspiring; Dance Woking look forward to welcoming the

company back to Woking on Friday 4 April when they perform Stolen Wishes in a DOUBLE

BILL at Rhoda McGaw Theatre alongside Second Hand Dance performing 'Dad Dancing'. For
