The English National Ballet is taking part in fundraising drive, the Big Give, on 4-5 December 2015 to raise £30,000 towards starting new ‘Dance for Parkinson’s’ classes. The Big Give charity has pledged to double all donations to English National Ballet during the two-day period.

English National Ballet run ballet classes based on their classical repertoire for people with Parkinson’s, their families, friends and carers. They are delivered in a professional dance studio with live music and, according to the organisation, they “provide an informal way to discover the themes, choreography and music of the ballets”.
