Today we would like to introduce you to some of the dancers that will be participating at the virtual gala.
In this occasion as the title reveals, one of the pieces to be danced will be the Pas de Trois des Odalisques from the ballet Le Corsaire. The version they will interpret was choreographed by Marius Petipa in 1858 and the music is by Adolphe Adam and Cesare Pugni.

This pas de trois will be opening the show and it will be performed in beautiful white tutus. The girls are looking forward to share their work with the children and hope that they will enjoy this gorgeous piece.
We want to thank Daniele Silingardi for the lovely photos.
As you can see the dancers are rehearsing arduously to bring to the children a stunning gala that we hope that it will inspire them to keep dancing and learning about this art.
While we enjoy preparing this kind of events for them we also envision how it will be once we are able to travel there and bring some of these talented artists along. And that is why we would really appreciate if you took a moment to consider donating. Because we have many future plans that at the moment are on hold, but when we are on the ground we will come back with more videos, photos, fulfilling stories and dozen more ideas to share with you. So if you want to be a part of this journey and want to help us, please do not hesitate!
