Flamenco For Kids

Never tiring of her relentless Festival tipping, ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses picks some shows for the kids.

Drama Workshops For 5-12s
When I take my daughter to see Fringe shows, she always wants to get up on stage and join in. Now that she’s over five, I can send her along to one of these workshops which are run by the brilliant Spotlites, who are great with children and who do great, interactive shows for children. Plus, you get to leave the kids behind for an hour and go off and have a lovely coffee. Mmmm.
Spotlites @ The Merchants Hall, 30 Jul-14 Aug, 17 and 18 Aug, 24 and 25 Aug, 10.00am.

Reading Workshops at the Edinburgh International Book Festival
These are for older children, aged 12+, and see authors taking a close look at a classic text; for example, Alan Durant examines ‘Catcher In The Rye’, Sally Gardner takes a look at Maggot Moon, and Charlie Fletcher tackles Treasure Island. See the Book Festival’s programme, or website – www.edbookfest.co.uk – for a full list of events and more details.
Charlotte Square Gardens, 10-23 Aug, 11.00am.

Flamenco for Kids
I took my daughter to Ricardo Garcia’s ‘Flamenco For Kids’ last year and she had an absolutely brilliant time learning to dance a bit whilst wearing a glamorous outfit. Garcia et al are all so delightfully friendly and generally lovely that children just can’t help relaxing and getting into the flow of things. Super.
