Winston Dancers Perform at Woking’s Winter Shorts

Dancers from The Winston Churchill School were invited to perform at Dance Woking’s Winter Shorts programme at the Rhoda McGaw Theatre last week.

The schools KS3 Dance Club were given the opportunity to take part in the Young DanceMakers Platform, on Wednesday 20th November, sponsored by Sportivate, a 6 week dance project, allowing schools to work with Dance Woking and to provide platforms for schools to enable them to share their work as well as to gain experience of presenting it in a live theatre environment.  The Young DanceMakers were encouraged to choreograph their own dance through peer to peer support and by working with Dance Woking professional dance artists. This is the second year that we have been given this opportunity.

The evening was a great success!

On Saturday it was the turn of the G&T Dance Cohort.  They were invited to take part at Dance Woking’s Community Platform Innovate.  Sixteen dance groups took part and the audience were wowed with some amazing, exciting and electrifying performances.  Our girls ‘did us proud’!!  Their sensitive interpretation of Matt Walker’s choreography ‘Reflection’ was sublime and their musicality and focus was touching; showing a maturity of movement beyond their years.  Their journey so far has been amazing and the dancers continue to grow and benefit from the G&T Dance programme taught by Matt.
