Welcome back to our second folk course for 7-11 year olds, created by trac and Urdd Gobaith Cymru in partnership. Our tutors – Angharad Jenkins, Bethan Rhiannon and Gwenan Gibbard – specialise in presenting music and folk dance to children of all ages. During the weekend the children will combine traditional music and dance activities with Glan-llyn’s exciting outdoor activities such as canoeing, high ropes, climbing and ten pin bowling.
For the instrumental activities, it would help for the children to have some instrumental background as they will be learning tunes by ear, but for those who do not play there will be plenty of opportunities to sing and take part in step dance (clogging).
Glan-llyn staff will be looking after the children whilst they are at the centre and transport can be arranged (for an extra cost) if there is sufficient demand.
Please note: The course will be held through the medium of Welsh and learners are very welcome.
