The programme is still growing, and is subject to change

Mara’s Charity, Dancing for the Children, has this year invited GREAT ORMOND STREET HOSPITAL CHILDREN’S CHARITY to join them in benefiting from this event.  

‘Gala  2011’ promises to be an unforgettable celebration of the power of dance, with the aim of raising   money for children both  here and abroad, and also to enable Mara’s dancers to return to South Africa in 2011 and continue the work that they started there in 2007, changing lives and communicating across geographical, cultural and social borders and distributing funds from this Gala 2011 to underprivileged children.
