It's almost showtime

Tickets are now on sale (via the online shop or put an order form in the box at the studio) and the Mayor and members of the Woking Council have been invited.

We are putting the finishing touches on the costumes and everything is pointing at our two studio Show Run throughs on Sunday 19th April and Sunday 26th April. See the notice board for timings, including the photos being shot on the 19th.

Dancers will be changing their costumes and hanging out in the Mayford Athletic Club, the building behind us with the silver ramp! Bring some slip on shoes and a wrap for the dash across the car park to come up to the studio, and bring some nibbles and your good humour as it will be a long, wonderful day!

New Trustee

After many years at WDS Gen Howgate has finally given in and agreed to become a full trustee.

She already contributes a huge amount to the studio, especially teaming up with Zelda on the costumes, so we’re pleased to be able to make the appointment formal! Please join us in welcoming Gen to the team!

20th Anniversary Celebrations

We still have a few Calendars, Cookbooks and Clothing items left. Snap them up and show your pride of being part of this lively Dance Space. Be the first one to have sampled all of the yummy recipes, including the Damson Gin!

Our New Basic Courses

The newest kid on the block is Natalie Dodd, who has been running our new Basic Courses at 6:30pm on Monday nights. The first course, Ballet, went down a treat, and we are just wrapping up the Contemporary course.

Basic Tap starts on Monday 13th April for 6 weeks and after that we plan on starting the rotation again. Welcome Natalie and we hope we see more of you in the future!

New Relaxed Contemporary Class

We are starting a new daytime contemporary class with Shani, just slightly slower paced than Wednesday evenings, with a bit less jumping and less bendy floor work.

Sounds perfect, yes? Starts on Friday 17th April at 9:30am – great for an end of week wind down.

Party in the Park

For the third year running we have been asked to perform at Party in the Park. We will be performing Shani's Contemporary number 'Nuevo Día' and Emily's Contemporary Jazz number 'Help the People'.

Please come along and support the studio on 11th July, and let's hope for better weather than last years wash-out!


A few quick congratulations:
