PREVIEW: Charity Dance Gala

The Gay Men’s Dance Company’s (GMDC) stage their first annual variety showcase, starring GMDC members from London and Brighton, their choir, pole dancers and special guest acts.

Join them for an uplifting evening of fun and jazz-hands, as they take you on a journey through song, dance and spoken word reflective of gay life in 2017.

With over 300 active members, GMDC performers range from experienced dancers to their newest members making their performance debut.

All net proceeds will go to the Alex Scurr Foundation (ASF), raising money for existing LGBT charities and organisations. Current partners include: Dean St, London Friend, ELOP, Opening Doors, Positive East, GMFA, Wandsworth Oasis, Diversity Role Models and MindOut.

With the help of ASF, financial support will be provided for combating homophobia, chemsex and substance abuse while improving sexual health/wellbeing throughout the capital. Both prevention and fighting stigma of HIV, and mental health issues from depression and anxiety to relationship-building will also be included.

The ASF aims to create a more healthy and connected LGBT community.

Patrick Cash, from Attitude and 56 Dean Street, said: “A joyous and uplifting inspiration of what gay men can achieve together. Not only was the dancing captivating to watch, each number assembled with insight and expertise. The story of community that emerged from the spoken personal anecdotes were deeply moving. The GMDC may be viewed simply as a dance class from the outside, but evidently to its members the company provides both an outlet for passion and a treasured space of friendship, solidarity and love”

Dress code is fabulous. Stay on after the show finished and drink, dance and party with the cast until the early hours.
