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
