Face to Face classes resume

May 10, 2021

As confirmed by Boris' announcement this afternoon, we are happy to confirm that Face to Face classes are all set to return from Monday 17th May.

We will return to the 'Covid Secure' model that we were using last year, before the current lockdown.

The ongoing building works at the Mayford Centre will likely cause daytime disruption. We have a meeting to confirm the situation, and decide our plan, with the centre / project team on Wednesday. I know this might seem late in the day, but their project meeting is tomorrow, so an informed decision wont be possible until then.

We are confident the daytime classes WILL be live and we have a plan B if the work around our studio proves to be unavoidable. All will be communicated as soon as we know 

Spring Term 2021

January 2, 2021

Due to Woking and the surrounding areas being placed into Tier-4 we are unable to offer face-to-face class at this time.

However we will be back on Zoom with our full timetable of classes from Monday 4th January. Click here for details of out classes.

You can purchase your classes using the WDS on-line store. On completion of your order you will be sent the details to login to the Zoom class.

Covid-19 tier update

November 2, 2020

Not quite the new half term update we were intending to send, but we must roll with the punches...

Following the Government’s update over the weekend, we have to close the studio for face-to-face classes from Thursday.

As such Thursday and Friday’s classes are cancelled and we will be getting in touch with all those booked on in the coming days to arrange refunds etc.

We are working on our plans for how we intend to take WDS forward and will be in touch with exciting updates soon!!

Wednesday class changes

October 27, 2020

Following discussions amongst the dancers and trustees, we are pleased to announce that we are mixing Wednesday nights up a bit to make more room for people to get to class.

From next week the Wednesday class timings will be as follows:

With the exception of Pointe, all classes will be 45minutes, with a 5 minute window at the end for cleaning and vacating / coming in, per the current set up.

Class price has been adjusted to reflect the shorter class, to £4.

The new classes are in the webshop ready to go from tomorrow, so please make sure you select carefully when booking on and make a note of the new start times!

As ever, if you have any queries or issues, please do get in touch via info@wokingdancespace.org.uk

"Indoor Sports" update!

September 23, 2020

An update in light of yesterday’s announcement!

Dance classes are not included when the Government talks of indoor sports. Organised dance and exercise classes in groups larger than 6 can take place as long as Covid safe procedures are in place and groups of more than 6 do not mix. Our classes do not involve group dances - everyone is on dancing in their own box or in their own area so not mixing.

With that in mind, especially when classes are fuller we are reminding people to make sure to keep distance to fellow dancers - being aware of movement and travel , using our separate entrance and exit routes, and sanitising hands.

Classes are booked a and paid for in advance only on our online shop, so book on , come along and join in!
