Rhythm of the Celts in the Community is a new charity being created that will deliver workshops to young people in deprived areas, encouraging them into music and dance whilst celebrating their culture and heritage.
On Wednesday 1st September at 7pm, a 40 minute preview of the Rhythm of the Celts stage production (written and choreographed by Ciaran Devlin, former Principal Dancer with Lord of the Dance) will be performed at the Destiny Centre, 1120 Pollokshaws Rd, Shawlands, to start raising funds for the charity.
Ciaran has teamed up with Skerryvore (Scottish Ceildh Band) so you can imagine a show born in Scotland that is as big as Lord of the Dance and Riverdance, with a huge stage and cast, blazing bagpipes, pulsing snare drummers, and foot stomping rhythms.
An introductory workshop is being held on Tuesday 31st August at 5pm – 6pm in the Destiny Centre, Shawlands where around 20 kids in the local area will be able to learn more about Rhythm Of The Celts (ROTC) and will have the opportunity to meet the cast of the show. They’ll not only learn dance steps but they’ll also get the chance to see how the staging/lighting is set up
Rhythm of the Celts in the Community will be raising funding to deliver a 24 week programme of workshops in Castlemilk for young people to encourage them off the streets and into music, culture and healthier lifestyles for them and their families.
