How about learning a new, creative skill for free? Birmingham Hippodrome in partnership with Aarrow Advertising (USA) have an exciting new opportunity for up to 20 young people to learn the art of Sign Spinning.
Sign Spinning – is exactly that – spinning signs in an energetic and skilled way to advertise an event, a company, or just to show off what visual tricks can be achieved. Sign spinning bridges the gap between dance and sport. Think urban street style – re-mixed with street dance – add in a bit of skater and surf for good measure and you are on the right wave length! Take a look at how it looks in the video below and search Sign Spinning on Youtube for more content.
Birmingham Hippodrome have invited to Birmingham – Max Durovic the “spin-ventor” and CEO of AArrow Advertising along with head trainer Justin Brown – also known in the industry as the Bruce Lee of sign spinning.
The Aarrow team will then be hosting daily workshops in public spaces for up to 20 young people from Aug 19-23. Those who excel will then have the opportunity to perform at a range of events over summer – including at our Summer in Southside events this Bank Holiday weekend.
This opportunity will suit active young people aged 16 – 25 with skills in urban sports, street dance and or circus. All the apprentice spinners will need is comfortable weather proof clothing and a positive mental attitude – the signs will be provided.
Any interested parties simply need to commit to attending 4 FREE workshops and register as an individual:
