Contemporary Dance

I'm trying to find out if there are any dancers out there who might be interested in a contemporary dance class or know of one that's already going on.

The reason for this is because through my freelance arts project management work with Creative Partnerships, I've recently met another trained dancer. The two of us were discussing how we would love to do a regular technique class (preferably Cunningham/Graham based) somewhere locally, rather than having to travel into London or out to Newbury or Guildford. Having struggled to find anything, we've now begun to think about setting up a class ourselves.

If you are interested, know someone else who might be, or have any relevant information, it would be great to hear via

New arts market for Wokingham

Wokingham’s Town Centre Manager has agreed to trial a Sunday Art & Craft Market in Wokingham, the first Sundays of June, July and August, beginning Sunday June 1st. Trading hours will be 11am to 3pm, the cost of a stall is £5.

The idea is to copy the farmers' market ethos, in that local artists and craftspeople will be encouraged to sell their work, rather than importers or sellers of factory-made goods.

We can interpret 'local' quite flexibly - you don't necessarily have to be within Wokingham to have a stall, just within reasonable striking distance.

If you are interested and would like an application form, please send an e-mail to:

but replacing the % with the character you always get in e-mail addresses. (This is to avoid spambots harvesting the address).

In a second bold attempt to get people communicating about local arts on the web, voila the new blog for the Wokingham Arts Forum. Feel free to send me any notices, press releases etc for display. Use the 'post a comment' link to add messages.

Anything obscene, irrelevant or connected to reality TV will be ruthlessly deleted when I get round to it...
