A POPULAR leisure destination in Renfrewshire is preparing to unveil Scotland's first bespoke social media content creation space.

XSite Braehead's colourful digital dance studio, which comes ready with a selection of eye popping backdrops, is set to launch on Thursday, just in time for teenagers and those young at heart to celebrate one last summer holiday weekend with friends.

Young people at Studio XSite will be able to create fun videos to share on their TikTok, Instagram or other favourite social platform - making memories that will last a lifetime.

For customers looking for some help creating their content, XSite Braehead has partnered with one of Scotland’s top TikTok talents Hayley Aris for the launch of the studio.

The Gazette:

Hayley, who has amassed over 765,000 likes and a following of almost 50,000 fans on TikTok with her creative dances and accessible choreography, has created three original and easy-to-master routines – one for each photo-worthy backdrop.

She will be on hand to demonstrate her dances, help customers land their steps, give tips on editing their videos and assist with any other content-related queries.

Hayley told The Gazette: "This is the ultimate space to create amazing, high-quality videos.

"From bright ring lights with phone holders to the most photogenic settings, Studio XSite is a content-creator’s dream!

"I can’t wait for the launch, and I’m looking forward to showing customers the unique routines I’ve created for each backdrop."

Alongside Hayley, professional dancers from leading Scottish studio Ace Tribe Dance Company will be on site to help customers nail their routines.

The dancer will be on hand for customers from launch day, ensuring that everyone who visits feels confident and camera-ready.

Rosalind Gibson, marketing manager at XSite Braehead, said: "I’m sure that XSite Studio will prove popular among our younger customers.

"We’ve installed everything you may need to create an amazing video and we are working with some of Scotland’s most exciting, creative young talent to launch the space.

"For those who don’t feel like dancing, our three stunning backdrops also double as the perfect selfie backdrop. I’d encourage everyone to come visit us and check out the studio."

Located on the upper floor of XSite Braehead, the new studio will be open from noon to 6.00pm, starting from Thursday.
