The London Dance Community is Raising $$ for Grenfell Fire Victims

July 6, 2017

Last month, a fire engulfed a London apartment building, killing at least 80 residents and leaving many more without a home or any belongings.

But the London dance community isn’t staying idle while their neighbors face tragedy. A just-announced gala is bringing together some of the city’s biggest stars to raise money for the Grenfell Fire victims.

The Gala for Grenfell, spearheaded by choreographer and director Arlene Phillips, will feature dancers from every corner of London’s dance scene—plus a few appearances from the international dance community. The Royal Ballet, Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures, The Mariinsky Ballet, Ballet Black and Akram Khan are just a few highlights from the list.

Tickets are now on sale
for the gala, which will take place on July 30 at the Adelphi Theatre in London. Donations can also be made here. All proceeds will go to the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation to support victims of the fire.
