LONDON, March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Ormond Street Hospital has announced it will be holding another Charity Gala as part of its Theatres for Theatres Appeal.
February 2011 saw Great Ormond Street Hospital holding the Andrew Lloyd Webber Wizard of Oz Charity Gala, and April 2011 will see the Royal Ballet Principal's Mara Galeazzi's Charity Gala.
For one night only, Mara Galeazzi, one of the world's leading ballet dancers, will be hosting and performing at a very special evening of dance, song and music. The event will be presented by Nicky Henson (who played Jack Edwards on the soap Eastenders) and Mara will be joined by a prestigious line up including Principals of the Royal Ballet, the Balletboyz, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, 4 Poofs and a Piano and other special guests.
Whether the audience are fans of classical ballet or tap and contemporary dance, there should be a little something for everyone, with world premieres from new and established choreographers and virtuoso music and song.
All the money raised from the Mara Galeazzi Charity Gala will be split between both Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity and Dancing for the Children, a charity that Mara founded which helps underprivileged children in Africa. Part of the Theatres for Theatres appeal money raised will help fund state-of-the-art operating theatres for young patients requiring specialist brain surgery.
This special evening will be taking place at Sadler's Wells Theatre on Sunday 3 April 2011 and it promises to be a celebration of the power dance and entertainment has to change lives.
