Welcome to a new year at Haverstock School!
A few months in and everything is in full swing here at BookingsGuru, so much so we have only just had time to write a new blog!
Our New Year events went really well and all our regular hirers are back up and running. We have lots of exciting events coming up in the next few months which we are excited to tell you about.
Coming up this month we have a fantastic dance event by Dancehall Origins on Saturday 23rd March 2019. Dancehall Origins brings renowned Dancehall artists from Jamaica to London for an intensive day of workshops and lectures. Teaching for the first time ever in the UK, they are excited to present FAMOUS DANCER and DANCING REBEL. For more information about the event please visit their website.
Also in March we have another Toy Soldier Show taking place on Saturday 30th from 9.30 am until 4 pm. At the show you will find a host of traders whom you can chat and get advice prior to purchasing. You will be able to meet their TSC magazine editor and contributors, as well as fellow enthusiasts! Take a look at their website. to find out more.
During the Easter holidays we have exciting holiday camps from Tekne Gymnastics and seminars from Tai Ji Circle who will be having their first ever event at Haverstock School this year!
If you have a budding gymnast stuck on a move, Tekne Gymnastics Easter Holiday Camp is a great way to get them to advance or if you have a bouncing monkey at home who has never done gymnastics before this is a really fun introduction to the sport. With games and challenges for all abilities, their holiday camp welcomes children at all levels from 3 years to 16 years old. If you are interested in signing your little one up visit their website here.
We are very fortunate to be able to learn the exciting Chen Double swords form with Master Chen over two days, from Friday afternoon to evening and all day Saturday at Haversack School Sports Hall in Chalk Farm, Camden, hosted by Tai Ji Circle. Double Swords is a beautiful and powerful weapon form containing many circular defensive and attacking techniques. After a much practice each attack and defence should be executed with speed and force. Weapons routines aim to help us learn how to integrate the movement of the weapon/s so that it feels as if it is part of the body, controlled from the energy and movement of the internal dantian. It is advisable to have had some previous weapons experience. The son of Grandmaster Chen Xiaoxing, Master Chen Ziqiang is a 20th generation direct descendant of the Chen Family Taijiquan, the Chief Coach of the prestigious Chenjiagou Taijiquan School and a renowned tai ji champion in China and worldwide. For more information visit the website. We have been assured the swords are safe and will be in the hands of the masters!
We are always looking for new and exciting events to host at Haverstock so if you are in the process of planning something in the Camden area don't hesitate to drop us a line to find out about our facilities. Be quick though as spaces fill up fast!
Hope to see you soon!
