Dance for Change in proud partnership with Dance UK


Beth Evans and Jim Fletcher with The Sugar Dandies.

On Sunday 6 April, Dance for Change Programme Director, Jim Fletcher and Programme Coordinator, Beth Evans, supported a Fundraising Tea Dance at The Royal Ballet School in London’s Covent Garden. The event – hosted by Britain’s Got Talent’s The Sugar Dandies – was to raise money for Dance UK (the dance industry’s advocacy group) and ADAD (The Association of Dance of the African Diaspora).

More than 140 guests including Dame Gillian Lynn, Director of The Royal Ballet Kevin Ohare, Richard Alston and Akram Khan were treated to a range of performances. These included The Royal Ballet’s Valentino Zucchetti, tap dancer Annette Walker, and Rambert Dance Company who danced an excerpt from Christopher Bruce’s Rooster to music by The Rolling Stones.
