Let's go to the Theatre!

Next Wednesday 26th March, at 15:45h, we are going to see a play in our school, INS Pau Vila. The theatre company Clever Pants presents a new show called 3 in 1 to 1st ESO.
PLOT OF THE PLAY:  Let's take a comic look at some classic English literary styles from the last 400 years. Using a dynamic sketch show format our crack actors play a multitude of characters in our own versions of three classic genres. We give a modern twist to a seventeenth century stage tragedy; a nineteenth century melodrama; and a twentieth century adventure. Carefully graded speech, controlled interaction and a large dose of humour guarantee maximum enjoyment with minimum frustration. We hope you will enjoy the play! Have fun!

Let's dance CEILIDHS!

If you are looking for a brighter more dynamic ceilidh event, having a dedicated Dance Caller and Presenter, can make all the difference. In addition to creating a motivating focus point for your guests, a professional entertainer guides the programme smoothly from beginning to end, making sure each element seamlessly follows the next.

DAVID VICANCO: Ceilidh Dance Caller and Event Presenter with over 10 years experience in the industry. Background: Music, acting, management & languages.

There are a number of ceilidh bands with whom I work regularly. The size of band and instruments in the line-up are flexible, depending on requirements and you can have anything from a single accordionist to a full five-piece band. Recorded music is another option, considerably lowering the cost without necessarily detracting from the atmosphere. Because you have a dedicated dance caller / presenter on the dance floor with your guests, the absence of live musicians need not be a concern.  This is very popular for smaller occasions, informal school and business functions or where the ceilidh dancing is a shorter 'section' of the evening rather than the main event. If you require a piper, clarsach player/singer, story-teller, highland dancer/s or Scottish Country dancers, I will be happy to make recommendations.

If you're planning an event and want a friendly, flexible and professional frontman who will work hard to  make sure your guests have a really great time - please click on this link and get in touch!
