December 2009 - Dance Show/Fundraiser
On December 6th The Angela Grant School of dance held its first
annual ballet and awards show in aid of The Padua Charitable Fund.
The sell-out show "The Gallery", held at St Dunstan's
church in Acton in East London featured over 100 costumed children
in 15 stunning dance numbers. Each dance saw famous paintings
of artists "come to life" from Van Gogh's Sunflowers
to Matisse's Cat.

Ballet) and Rebecca Grant (Andrew Lloyd Webber's Bombay Dreams)
each performed spectacular numbers adding to the magnificent event.
Special guest for the presentation was former ballet teacher to
Angela, dancing legend Nora Morrison from Nottingham who has held
many charity shows in her lifetime and has taught many pupils
to do just the same.
Proceeds from ticket and photo sales, as well as the school
raffle were kindly donated to The Padua Charitable Fund.
