The Royal Ballet Principal Mara Galeazzi & A Gala for Africa

With children very much in our minds following the many, many orphans highlighted in the aftermath of the Haitian disaster, I wanted to remind everyone about Royal Ballet Principal Mara Galeazzi’s determined work for children in Africa, and the Gala next month. In my original post, Mara has left a comment thanking you all for the interest you’ve shown so far and saying how important this is to her.

Here is an exclusive photograph from the rehearsals – I think you’ll agree it’s looking very good !

Here are the details again :

I know that you will all want to support such a great cause, and I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.  Perhaps we should arrange interval drinks – and a quick chat with Mara ?  Let me know your thoughts please.
