DCD Fundraising Gala Performance of the Award winning: 'An American in Paris'
DCD's Fundraising Gala Performance of: An American in Paris, March 15th 2017
Dancers' Career Development (DCD) has been supporting professional dance for over 40 years. We help dancers to make the often difficult transition from professional dancing to a new career by giving them the confidence and skills they need to keep working beyond dance.

Thank you to all who supported and joined us on this special evening to raise funds to enable these dancers to successfully transition into a post-performance career. All proceeds from the gala will go towards supporting Independent Dancers across the UK.
The DCD Fundraising Gala was kindly supported by The Linbury Trust and The Mackintosh Foundation.
Together, we can make a life changing difference to professional dancers across the UK.
Thank you for your support.

“CHRISTOPHER WHEELDON’S TONY® AWARD-WINNING MUSICAL PUTS HIM UP ON A LEVEL WITH JEROME ROBBINS.” Judith Mackrell, THE GUARDIAN
Jerry Mulligan is an American GI striving to make it as a painter in a city suddenly bursting with hope and possibility. Following a chance encounter with a beautiful young dancer named Lise, the streets of Paris become the backdrop to a modern romance of art, friendship and love in the aftermath of war...
Prepare to be swept away by the breathless romance and dazzling spectacle of Broadway’s triumphant, Tony® Award-winning hit musical as it comes to London with the original stars Robert Fairchild and Leanne Cope. An exceptional company of 50 actors, dancers and musicians also includes Jane Asher as Madame Baurel.
Directed and choreographed by Olivier and Tony® Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon, An American in Paris features many of George and Ira Gershwin’s most popular and timeless songs, including I Got Rhythm, ‘S Wonderful and They Can’t Take That Away From Me, together with George Gershwin’s sublime compositions Concerto in F and An American in Paris.
