Lindy Hop Dance Workshops (date and time tbc)
Fun, informal sessions of dance from the 1920’s – 1940’s with director and dancer, Allie Butler. You don’t have to be a dancer to do this, as long as you have a sense of fun and are ready to try something new! You will listen to music and learn some easy and enjoyable dance steps as a group. Taking jazz music and dance as the inspiration, the session will involve a low key warm up, exercises to get your body moving to music followed by a short, low impact and uncomplicated routine to a song, or make up your own version if you prefer!
Song Writing Workshops – Create a song as a group and have it played! (date and time tbc)
Have you wanted to write a song but don’t know where to start?! Come along and join Warren McIntyre of the band the Starry Skies. You write a line he plays a chord, someone else writes a line, he plays a chord and so on, so by the end of it a new song will have been written to be performed or perhaps more than one! No experience is necessary so come, unlock your ideas & have your voice heard!
Play Reading – 2021 by Lisa Nicoll (date and time tbc)
Join the cast to hear 2021, a new play by Lisa Nicoll, which has been inspired by the Voices of Ferguslie. The play is currently in development and In Motion Theatre would love you to hear the first draft of this to hear your thoughts and have input to make sure a strong Ferguslie Voice is heard. The play will have music and dance in it and will be touring in Autumn 2020 in Scotland and Spring 2021 England & Ireland in association with Paisley Arts Centre as part of the Paisley 2021 legacy.
Podcasts – Have your Voice Heard! (date and time tbc)
In Motion are putting together a series of Podcasts with communities across Scotland so their voices can be heard about all things that actually matter to them. We would love the people of Ferguslie Park to be the starting point for this. Whatever your age, come along to a safe, comfortable environment to do this and meet Cameron McGarva, voice over artist and presenter of the podcasts, and tell us what your home and the town you live in means to you.
Friday Social Friday 18th October (time tbc)
On Friday 18th October, everyone can come together for lunch, some music, dance and a chance to catch up with friends. Put your dance skills to use, have your song heard by others or just come along to join in the atmosphere – all ages welcome.
