The weekend that was... (Fri 23 – Sun 25 Mar 2012)
Last weekend, apart from busking in the glorious sunshine; we donned our psychedelic frocks and afro wigs and strutted to Dance Base for D.I.S.C.O wonderland and found ourselves doing the boooogie!
Over at Ceilidh Culture, traditional arts is hip and relevant when the World Champion Highland Dancers dance-off with the Scottish Champion Breakdancers in between ceilidh dance breaks at the Voodoo Rooms.
At time of writing this blog, we're just FOUR days away from the Edinburgh International Science Festival! We look forward to what the festival has in store for our curious minds!
That weekend in Edinburgh...
Friday: Highland and BBoy Dance-Off at Ceilidh Culture's Whisky Kiss
Saturday: D.I.S.C.O Fever at Dance Base
Sunday: The Great Countdown to the Edinburgh International Science Festival
Whisky Kiss at Ceilidh Culture
We're already twelve days into Edinburgh's celebration of traditional arts that is Ceilidh Culture. You must already be in the thick of all the traditional arts action!
Although passed, Ceilidh Culture's Whisky Kiss that saw World Champion Highland Dancers dance-off against Scottish Champion Breakdancers still
deserves a good mention for its dedication to entertain.
Here are some pictures of the event for you to have a taste in case you've missed it.
We hope it spurs you to continue to enjoy the three remaining weeks of Ceilidh Culture. So hurry, get your tickets and start enjoying!
What's next at Ceilidh Culture?
Ceilidh Culture runs from 16 March to 15 April so there's still three more weeks to be entertained by the stellar line up of traditional arts performers.
We are looking forward to Usher Hall's Folk Weekender on 6th and 7th April
featuring the following performers. Hop over to our Facebook Page over the next couple of days for treats that will be music to your ears!
Get booking and start enjoying!
D.I.S.C.O Fever at Dance Base
Retro Fashion! Fog Machine! Disco Ball! Sky high platformed shoes! Bee Gees Music! Bright and funky colourful lights! Dance Base transformed its dance studio into a rocking Club last saturday night and boy were we psyched.
We boogied long into the night and left supremely satisfied from a great '70s night out at Dance Base.
Everyone came dressed to impress with bright, shiny, colourful, flamboyant (running out of adjectives here) and not forgetting, gravity-defying afro wigs. Check out the photos and videos we got and you'll see that we're not making any of this up!
What's next at Dance Base?
Dance Base's Summer Brochure of dance courses, drop-in classes and workshops for everyone from 16 April - 29 June is out.
After a wee nosey around their brochure, we found some exciting workshops in May and June as well as Summer Hip Hop Schools for young dancers!
Another exciting offering in the brew is Dance Base's Big Dance with free events all over the city on Saturday 30 June and Sunday 1 July! Can't wait for that!
The Great Countdown to Edinburgh International Science Festival
Together with the Science Festival and their partner venues: National Museum of Scotland and Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, we're organising a Bloggers Challenge and a Photo Challenge! Get involved and get excited about everything Science for the next three weeks starting this weekend!
Hop over to our Facebook Page to hear the latest on the Edinburgh International Science Festival and maybe even win yourself a Kindle with the Science Festival Photo Challenge. Day Four of our countdown got us hungry after checking out the events the Royal Botanic Garden of Edinburgh's Real Life Science Kitchen - hence these mouthwateringly good pictures!
What are Clicket Blogs?
Every Friday, Clicket peruses the weekend calendar of arts and cultural things to do in Edinburgh. We decide on 3; one on Friday, another on Saturday and (why not) a third on Sunday.
On our #FollowFriday tweet, @ClicketEdin recommends the folks who present these events and venture out – camera in hand and hearts expectant.
It’s not a retrospective blog though. Because we do our best to tell you what’s on next in those places we’ve been to so you can use our nifty “My Clicket” tool to plan your own weekend’s itinerary. Do remember you need to have registered and logged in to be able to make use of this part of Clicket.
