Harlequin were delighted to be part of a special evening of dance – the British Ballet Charity Gala presented by Dame Darcey Bussell and Ore Oduba.
For the very first time, dancers from all eight of Britain’s main ballet companies – Ballet Black, Birmingham Royal Ballet, English National Ballet, New Adventures, Northern Ballet, Rambert, Scottish Ballet and the Royal Ballet all performed pieces from their repertoire on the same stage. The stage featured Harlequin Liberty sprung floor panels with a Harlequin Cascade performance vinyl top surface.
The Royal Albert hall stated that this performance was a “powerful, beautiful and purposeful act of solidarity by Britain’s ballet industry to raise awareness of and funds for their art”. Overall, the gala benefited a total of 19 charities.
“The dancers of the eight leading companies of the UK just loved having the perfect floor to perform on. This allowed them to dance their best on this historic night. Thanks so much again to all at Harlequin” – Dame Darcey Bussell
The event will be streamed here from 18th June to 18th July 2021.
