Get this: unique hot ticket week-long free-running residency at Dunnoon’s Burgh Hall

This idea generates a massive ‘YES’. Argyll is pretty short on cool and active things to attract young folk – and in urban environments, like Dunoon, this is even more testing.

But here is genius.

Dunoon Burgh Hall is hosting a unique week-long residency in – free-running.

It may be called ‘parkour’ – but it’s free running. It’s that glorious, fluent, fast, rhythmic running up, over and across anything and everything – and it is SO street smart.

The residency is called SHIFT – and  how appropriate is that for what the lucky participants will be doing.

It’s a project linking free-running [parkour], dance and music, creating an opportunity for young people to spend an entire week working with three specialists – a dancer, a traceur and a musician.

Those taking part will devise routines and work collaboratively as a group – taking over the Burgh Hall.

Free running, is a physical and mental discipline expressed through human movement – and the Burgh Hall’s challenging invitation is: ‘Come and move to music like never before.’

The week is from  8th -12th April and the Youth Dance Residency is for 10-19 year olds, with each day’s session running [oh yes] from 10.30 – 15.15.

At 14.00 on the last day, Friday 12th April,there will be a ‘sharing event’; an on Thursday 11th April there is a family workshop  session from 16.00 – 17.50.

For all of the session, the week long residency and the two specials, everyone should wear baggy comfortable clothes for dancing -  just trainers, joggers and a t-shirt.

Lunch and water will be provided throughout the week – and a professional filmmaker will capture the week in a short film.
