Dame Darcey Bussell DBE, the Academy’s President, will host a star-studded evening to mark one hundred years of teaching the world to dance. Compèred by Angela Rippon CBE, the evening will feature a drinks reception with canapés, a three-course dinner with wine, dance performances, and a live auction with Lord Jeffrey Archer. It promises to be an evening to remember and as the event is in support of the Royal Academy of Dance’s Centenary Appeal, you will be helping the Academy to continue empowering people everywhere through dance.
