Coronavirus (COVID-19) update
March 24, 2020
Following the latest government statement of Monday 23rd March, 2020, the Woking Dance Space studio is closed to customers.
All classes and rehearsals have been cancelled until further notice.
Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update
March 17, 2020
We have been keeping an eye on the changing situation related to the virus and regretfully believe that it will be in everyone’s best interests to suspend classes FROM TOMORROW (Wednesday 18th March) until further notice, but likely until after Easter, and to close Sunday rehearsals for at least the next two weeks.
At this time, We do not intend to announce cancellation of the show – obviously the venue is currently shut, but as May is still some time away,we feel it would be precipitate to make any decision at this point. We may, however, have to have an updated rehearsal schedule to cover the gaps.
We will continue making announcements along the normal channels, so do keep looking out on our various social media groups and the website. We want to reassure you that our community still exists with our shared love of dancing, and we will be there for each other!We all look forward to it all blowing over and in the mean time, even if its just in your kitchen, keep dancing!!
New Dance floor
January 3, 2019
We have a new shiny dance floor!!
Being a professional (and therefore expensive!!) commodity we have purchased to improve our facilities for you, our lovely dancers, we ask that everyone helps us look after it.
You can help by;
- Removing outdoor footwear BEFORE going into the studio, (still of course using the cubbies to store your personal bits and bobs!)
- Tappers – checking your shoes for loose or protruding screws!
- Keeping an eye out for loose edges or tapes. Spare tape is in the cupboard under the stairs if needed but do let the Teacher or one of the Trustees know if you spot anything that doesn’t look right!
Eastbourne Dance Space
January 1, 2015
We have great pleasure in introducing Eastbourne Dance Space, a sister studio to Woking Dance Space, opening in January 2015.
The studio has been established by Claire Tabraham, who was previously a teacher and trustee at WDS. They are starting with a great timetable including Ballet, Jazz, Tap and Contemporary classes running during the daytime and evenings.
We wish Claire every success with her new venture. If you are in the Eastbourne area and are looking for a dance class you know where to go..
Hot Hot Hot !
July 22, 2013
Members of Woking Dance Space braved the 30 degree heat on 13th July to perform in Woking’s summer event, Party in the Park.
They presented three popular pieces from our recent show (Taylor, Runaway Baby and Zorbing), as well as reprised the pretty Village Fete ballet from a previous show.
These were performed on the Main Stage and the Big Top – both only a few degrees shy of temperatures hot enough to melt the dance floor.
A group of our dancers also performed in Encounter, a 20 minute long piece, themed around the idea of journeys and involving other community groups, choreographed by Temujin (of Olympic dancing-nurses fame!) and danced in weather defying wellies and rucksacks.
The liberal application of iced water bottles and towels kept everyone on their feet, and WDS proved yet again that they are one of the best community dance groups in the area!
Many thanks to everyone who came and supported us!
