Elmhurst's 2013 Fundraising Gala
Elmhurst School for Dance celebrates its 90th anniversary with this fundraising Summer Gala on Tuesday 9 July. Elmhurst’s Principal, Jessica Ward, and Artistic Director, Robert Parker, would be delighted if you could join us.
The programme will include excerpts from Swan Lake, a new ballet to Shostakovich’s Jazz Suite by Rambert's Mikaela Polley, jazz dance choreographed by Michelle Blair, flamenco choreographed by Ana Garcia, and
a suite of dances from David Bintley’s acclaimed 'Still Life' at the Penguin Café. Showcasing Elmhurst's talented Sixth Form students, for this one performance we will also welcome two special guest dancers from Birmingham Royal Ballet. The live music is supplied by the King Edward's High School and King Edward VI High School for Girls Symphony Orchestra.
Tickets are £50 and include a drinks and canapés reception, interval drinks, and the opportunity to take part in our Gala raffle.
All funds raised at this event will support the Elmhurst Fund to provide student bursaries and our programmes to develop facilities and our excellent academic programme.
