Royal Ballet Principal dancer Mara Galeazzi is staging her second gala in London this Sunday.Â Proceeds from the gala will go towards Mara’s charity,Â Dancing for the Children,Â as well asÂ Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Yesterday we had the opportunity to drop in on Mara as she worked, together with herÂ partner Gary Avis, on brand new pieces by choreographers Alastair Marriott and Jonathan Watkins. We hope you will enjoy these rehearsal images which show not only Mara and Gary’s commitment but also their joy and generosity of spirit:
