Today we pay tribute to former DCD Patron Dame Gillian Lynne DBE – a true inspiration to all those in the world of dance and a much loved supporter of dancers.

We celebrate Dame Gillian’s many incredible achievements and are truly grateful for her commitment to this charity and support for dancers going through the transition away from a professional performance career, including the many dancers who perform in the West End and are inspired by her remarkable energy and spirit.

Dame Gillian’s extraordinary work for DCD was invaluable, including for DCD’s Gala performance of “Cats”, and subsequent work on behalf of the charity, all of which raised substantial donations, later becoming a much valued Patron of the charity.

We remain forever indebted for Dame Gillian’s generosity.
