Saturday Night In (Tropical Summer Party Online) 🍹☀️

UPDATE (Please read) Make sure you’ve signed up to zoom (info on how to is at the bottom of the event info!). I’ll share the link at 8pm in the event comments. There will be two rooms (maybe more depending on numbers!) THE DANCE FLOOR This is the main room that you will join when you click the link. We’ll spend a bit of time at the start having a chitchat and then it’s time to MUTE MICS and DANCE! A summer playlist will play through your speakers and we can all dance and singalong together knowing that no one can hear us! THE BAR This is the breakout room! Tired of dancing? Fancy a chat? Click the BREAKOUT ROOMS button on the toolbar (it’s on the toolbar where you can open the chat etc. in the middle of the screen). Click to leave the dance floor and visit the bar! Fancy a dance? Click the button to leave the room and return to the dance floor! If you’re having trouble moving to the bar then let me know (try typing in the chat) and I’ll move you into the room! If the bar gets too crowded then I’ll open another room if people want to chat in a smaller group! This is my first time using zoom in this way so we’ll see what happens! I’ve done a test run but it may be different with more people! I’d recommend opening the chat so you can type whilst mics are muted! If you want to request a song then put it in the chat and I’ll see what I can do! Thank you for all the donations to Twycross Zoo so far! The link is still open for donations so if you’d still like to give the money you would’ve spent on a cocktail or uber then please do! https://www.totalgiving.co.uk/mypage/tropicalsummerparty ❤️ Can’t wait to see you all on Saturday! Let’s party! Summer clothes encouraged! ☀️🌺🍹 ----------------- Using Zoom: You will need to go to the Zoom.us website and create a free profile; and it’s worth doing this before the event as you will need to verify your free account with them before you can use it. You can then use the same account for all future events. If it asks you for a business email, just ignore the word ‘business’ and use your normal email. Please note that when you put in a name, this name may be displayed on the screen for other members, so put in a name that you don’t mind sharing! You can download the Zoom app for your PC/Mac or Smartphone/Tablet (iOs or Android) or you can use a Chrome browser to join the event room. If you are using a computer you will need a mic and a webcam, if you are using a phone or tablet you won’t need anything additional. You can opt to turn the video off if you don’t want to be on screen! The link will be shared in the comments at the start of the event.

Weekly Online Kitchen Ceilidh

Online event

Online 20:00 BST. Cribs are posted in the comments. So is the dance list if you want to swot up. Search for Schuggies-Ceilidhs on Facebook or https://www.facebook.com/WeddingCeilidhs/ What to expect: • Get kilted up. You don’t have to- really, dress how you want- onesies allowed. • Get someone to dance with. It’s social dancing so 6” not 6ft. Unless its eased where you are! Keep legal so they need to be in your household or bubble o If they won’t dance- see the next bit. • What if you don’t have a partner? Or they won’t join in! You have to evoke your black belt ceilidh ninja skills. If you’re not yet a black belt ceilidh ninja- this will help you practice  Dance with a broom or mop- preferable long handled and if you are using a mop- make sure it’s dry. H&S and all that. Sellotape a face to your broom or mop if it helps- Bit like stickman :) Dance with a ghost. You don’t have to do any of that Demi Moore pottery stuff- just pretend they are there. • What about space? You don’t need much space as there is only two of you- even if you have more dancing work with what you’ve got- you won’t need to skoooooosh far. All this might sound quite silly and it’s supposed to. Ceilidhs allow you to make mistakes and not get things right. It’s all about enjoying yourselves and socialising. Given it’s an online ceilidh the social side isn’t there and we can’t see you – perfect opportunity to practice your flossing when the time comes. Ceilidhs (pronounced "Kay-lay"), are enjoyed by all ages – from youngsters’ first Scottish dancing experience to old-timers enjoying a burl. People join dressed in jeans, full highland dress – and everything in between. Wear something comfortable to dance in. You don’t need to know what to do –I'll be calling the dances and explain what you need to do as you go along. So usual crac of a couple of walk through's and off we go. Music by the internationally renowned Iain Carmicheal.
