BREAKING BALLET NEWS – unmissable Ballet Gala next month

On Sunday November 7th, a collection of your favourite ballet dancers are getting together in London to dance in aid of charity.

You may remember Celisa Diuana from my recent interview and photoshoot, with this video from behind the scenes :

I’m pleased to be able to announce that Celisa will be dancing several pieces as you can see from the schedule below, and there are more exciting excerpts to be confirmed shortly.  I think you can relish the chance to see unusual combinations and this gala night has a really different feel from anything that’s gone before.

Recently I featured Venus Villa and Fernando Montano, and I can promise you that the gala organisers are doing everything possible to bring them to you – dancing Romeo and Juliet which you saw them rehearsing in this clip :

A lot of hard work has gone into bringing you something really different. 

Did you know that research carried out with Bath University in 2006 demonstrated that Honeypot is successful in providing a supportive environment where children feel liked, wanted, useful and valued .

         There are 175,000 young carers in the UK.

         The average age of a young carer is 12

         More than half of young carers live in one-parent families and almost a third care for someone with mental health problems.

         4 out of 10 London children live in poverty. 

The dancers and the charity really need your support, so please do snap up the last remaining tickets for what promises to be a unique evening in aid of a great cause.  See you there !
