This Art Exchange program has been very inspiaring for everyone involved.

The Galas where organized by Nicholas Jones and Julia Bergua from the Les Grands Ballet Canadiens de Montreal organized who came out with a group of International Ballet Dancers to perform on behalf of the charity in support of young dancers from our Ballet program. The venue was generously offered to our CBO - Anno’s One Fine Day, the proceeds of this special evening went to the CBO Anno’s One Fine Day to support the Arts Project. We are grateful for this collaboration and looking forward to the next Ballet Gala in 2020. http://www.annosafrica.org.uk/fundraisers-and-events
