Shake it Like Beyonce @ Freshers’ Fest

Learn the Beyonce Single Ladies dance @ Freshers’ Festival  with Dance HQ.

 Oh Beyonce. She simply can’t put a foot wrong in our books. If only we had the voice, swagger and moves of this bodacious diva. Well, with a little help from our booty shaking buddies at Dance HQ, we’re getting one step closer to achieving Queen B status.

Learn the infamous Single Ladies dance (black leotards not compulsory) at our Freshers’ Festival on the 19th & 20th September at SECC.

You’ll learn many things  at university but when it comes to partying during freshers’ week, we’re certain this will be the most valuable lesson of all.

Show them how it’s done and demand the attention of the dance floor, and, if they like it, they really should have put a ring on it… isn’t that right B?

A Lesson In Rap…fancy yourself as the next Prof Green?

Scotcampus Freshers’ Festival welcomes Scottish rappers Louie from Hector Bizerk & Silvertongue to SECC.

Scotland’s biggest Freshers’ Festival is back and this year we’re throwing some freestyle rap into the mix.

Could you be the next Professor Green or Dizzee Rascal? Now’s your chance to see if you’ve got what it takes. Scottish Hip Hop star Louie from Hector Bizerk will share the stage with fast talking gem, Silvertongue to entertain the student masses with a lesson in rap.

Louie and Silvertongue will freestyle on everything from the madness of freshers week to living in the big city before welcoming students on stage to give it a go themselves. Should they feel brave enough, freshers can also enter into a battle with either of the rap stars (NB. Yer Maw jokes are so early naughties).

Fancy it?  Join us on the 19th & 20th September, 10am-4pm for the biggest and best Freshers’ Festival @ SECC.

Could you be the next top model?

Could you be the next Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss or Tyra Banks? Now’s your chance to find out!

We’re delighted to announce that top agency, The Model Team will be sending scouts to the Scotcampus Freshers’ Festival @ SECC this year to see if any of you have the look, style and individuality to make it as a top model.

We caught up with Operations Manager, Cathy Owen and asked what it is she looks for when scouting new talent.

Q: What are the top 3 things you look for?

  1. Height first.  If I see a great face and they’re not tall enough it’s so disappointing, so now I always look for height and hope they have the face to match!
  2. An unusual quality.  We have many great models and have a reputation for excellent international connections so with that competition, they need to have a quirk or look that sets them apart.
  3. Attitude. This is so important, we have worked with models who had all the potential but not the drive or work ethic, and ironically models who had a great attitude were not strong enough to model internationally, so if we get the killer combination of models looks with great ambition and attitude we are in heaven!

Q: What do you think about the ‘fake’ culture, hair, nails, tan, eyelashes etc?

Honestly it’s so hard for us and clients to see past such an over-the-top look, people are doing themselves a disservice, natural is best.  When people apply to us we ask for minimal or no make-up and we expect our models to attend castings in this way too as clients like to see a blank canvas and natural beauty.   ‘Enhancing’ your look is much more appealing and attractive as opposed to the ‘fake’ culture.

Q: What advice would you give students looking to be scouted at the Freshers’ Festival? 

An individual sense of style certainly gets you noticed and we love to see our models personalities come out in their style, but for the purposes of assessing potential model looks I like little or no make-up and simple styling.
