Paragon is celebrating the leap year in February 2016 through our exciting fundraising campaign, Leap for a Laugh! 28 days of music and dance videos, with a celebration (to be revealed!) on the 29th!!

We want to encourage everyone to have their moment by creating something original in a 1-minute video of music &/or dance. You can pick a theme for the video if you like. It can be fun and silly, or serious and moody. We are asking everyone to be sponsored to make their videos, with the money raised being used to support our inclusive music and dance performance programmes. The videos will also help to share what Paragon is about – creating new music and dance with friends and having fun!

Here’s a sample video from Paragon to get you all thinking about what you might do: Leap for a Laugh!

Each day in February, Paragon will feature a “Headliner” on our Leap for a Laugh Facebook page (which will be launched in January) to encourage as many people as possible to take part. If you want to be a Leap for a Laugh headliner, please email as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment (only 28 headliner spaces available!!)

What to do:

  1. Create a Just Giving page and link it to the Leap for a Laugh campaign:
  2. Create a 1-minute video of music and/or dance with at least 3 people (the Paragon team are here to help!)
  3. Upload your video to Facebook between 1st February and 28th February (Headliners will be given a specific day when their video will be uploaded)
  4. Tag Paragon Music with the hashtag #leapforalaugh and share your Just Giving page to encourage people to donate and create a video of their own!!

Who to involve: Minimum 3 people per video – friends, family, colleagues.

What you’ll need: Camera (phones okay)
