A round-up of our week at Southside
How do you feel about skipping class? No, not deliberately missing school, but pop-up skipping workshops!
We’re all about inviting the community in to Southside to put on events, classes and meetings, so we were delighted to welcome Jack, from Boxercise Lincoln Elite (https://www.facebook.com/BoxerciseLincolnElite), who travels up and down the country meeting up with fellow skipping enthusiasts.
For Jack, skipping is a fun, inexpensive way to keep fit. His classes are suitable for all ages and abilities and they will be running from 7pm to 8pm every Monday evening. Get in touch with him via Facebook if you’d like to try it!
Everyone has probably tried skipping at least once in their life – most likely when they were on the school playground. But we bet not so many of you have tried Irish dancing!
You may have seen award-winning Irish dancer strutting his stuff on Lincoln High Street, and if you’ve always fancied having a go yourself, now’s your chance!
Tom founded the Conroy Irish Dance Academy in 2015 and now he’s bringing his fancy footwork to Southside.
His classes will be running at Southside every Tuesday from 6.30pm to 7.30pm and they’re designed to be fun and inclusive sessions for beginners and for dancers of all ages, genders and abilities.
But life here at Southside is not all skipping and dancing, you know – we love live music too!
That’s why we were buzzing to open our doors on Wednesday for our very first Jam Night, and it was a great success.
More than 60 people came along (we were so happy to see so many new faces through our doors), and their ages ranged from 14 to 80, so we really did appeal across the generations.
Our musicians played a great variety of material, including covers, improvisations and experimental soundscapes, and it sounded fantastic.
We’ve had some great feedback on Facebook – check it out here.
Finally, and still on the music theme, we’re pleased to report that we had a very productive meeting this week with two music lecturers from The University of Lincoln. They were so impressed with our venue that they will be hiring St Katherine’s Hall for their university choir rehearsals and concerts this year!
