A message to DCD Retrained Dancers from Virginia Bullock, née de Gersigny, DCD Retrained Dancer and Trustee:

"DCD supported my transition from dance into a new career, and I am now extremely privileged to be on the board of DCD giving back to the charity that has provided so much to me. Purchasing a ticket to this event is your chance to give back to DCD and it will also help to ensure the continued support of DCD to dancers like you in the future. The event will be attended by a number of DCD's supporters and contributors who would be delighted to meet you and to hear your transition stories."

We look forward to seeing you there!

DCD Independent Trust Gala performance of Singin in the Rain

On Monday 19th March 2012, a Gala performance of Singin in the Rain was held at the Palace Theatre, London, in order to raise much needed funds for the DCD Independent Trust. The evening was a joyous occasion with guests enjoying the wonderful performance and a reception with the stars of the show, including Adam Cooper and Scarlett Strallen.

On behalf of all DCD Trustees, Development Committee members and staff, thank you to all who attended and supported the event for your extremely kind generosity, which will make a huge difference to the lives of Independent dancers.
